Abstract: Charge radii of all magnesium isotopes in the sd shell have been measured, revealing evolution of the nuclear shape throughout two prominent regions of assumed deformation centered on Mg-24 and Mg-32. A striking correspondence is found between the nuclear charge radius and the neutron shell structure. The importance of cluster configurations towards N = 8 and collectivity near N = 20 is discussed in the framework of the fermionic molecular dynamics model. These essential results have been made possible by the first application of laser-induced nuclear orientation for isotope shift measurements.
