Abstract
This paper presents the recent results of the TrapRad/Francium collaboration whose final aim is the measurement of the Atomic Parity Non-Conservation effect (APNC) in Francium atoms stored in a Magneto – Optical Trap (MOT) built at the Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL) of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN). Current developments and new strategies to enhance the trapping efficiency of Francium isotopes and to detect new spectroscopic features are reported.
