Radioactive atoms have been used in solid state physics for many years. Established nuclear techniques such as Möbauer spectroscopy, perturbed angular correlation, -NMR and emission channelling have now been joined by new and successful tracer techniques like radioactive deep level transient spectroscopy, capacitance voltage measurements, Hall-effect measurements or photoluminescence spectroscopy. Numerous radioactive species, ranging from to , are employed to attack problems involved with defects or impurities in metals, semiconductors and superconductors.

This paper aims to give an idea of the potential of modern `radioactive solid state physics' by briefly explaining the techniques used and describing some typical experiments.
