Bohr, who first suggested the possibility of a nuclear field effect on the S-term of the series of atomic spectra, (22) people in the 1920s could hardly imagine that optical spectroscopy would provide nuclear-structure information, because Rutherford (4) showed the dimension of the atomic nucleus to be extremely small (ca.
