The experimental study of magnetic moments for nuclear states near the ground state, I≥2, provides a powerful tool to test nuclear structure models. The study of magnetic moments in nuclei far away from the stability line is the next frontier in such studies. Two techniques have been utilized to populated low-spin states in radioactive nuclei: coulomb excitation reactions using radioactive nuclei, and the transfer of α particles to stable beams to populate low spin states in radioactive nuclei. A presentations of these two techniques, along with the experimental challenges presented for future uses with nuclei far away from the stability line, will be presented.
