We report on the status of the charge radius determination of the proton halo candidate 8B via collinear laser spectroscopy at Argonne National Laboratory. By combining high-resolution measurements of the isotope shift in an atomic ground state transition and high-accuracy ab initio mass-shift calculations of the five-electron system, the difference in mean-square charge radii between the short-lived 8B and the stable isotopes 10,11B can be extracted and will deliver a model-independent test of the 8B proton halo character. In preparation, we installed a collinear laser spectroscopy beamline at ANL and investigated the production of 8B-ions, including molecule breakup through few-nm carbon foils. Furthermore, we determined the nuclear charge radii of the stable boron isotopes 10,11B by resonance ionization mass spectrometry (RIMS) at TU Darmstadt.
