We report on our progress towards confirming the exotic structure of the proton-halo candidate 8B. So far, only model-dependent experimental evidence exists which suggests a strong increase in nuclear charge radius. This observable can be accessed model-independently by a laser-spectroscopic investigation, benchmarking not only the results of almost three decades of research, but also of nuclear theory approaches to model this exotic nucleus.
A precursor resonance laser ionization mass spectrometry experiment was performed on stable boron isotopes at TU Darmstadt, delivering the difference in mean-squared nuclear charge radius between 10B and 11B. It also proved the disposability of the atomic theory calculations which are necessary to interpret the results. Apart from the results of this experiment, updates from the ongoing effort to extend it to 8B at Argonne National Laboratory will be presented.
