    An epitome of optical methods used in atomic spectroscopy of radioactive atoms is presented. The overview addresses a number of results in atomic structure and hyperfine structure, and the implications in the study of electric and magnetic properties of nuclei. An aperçu is given of the concomitant development of the experimental methods, from simple optical techniques to laser spectroscopy, and from use of "off-line” experiments to ones using ISOLDE-type facilities
