ABSTRACT: We present the Trap-rad experiment, which in the long term aims to an atomic parity violation (APV) measurement in francium
isotopes. We describe the present status of the experiment, the francium production and the magneto-optical trap (MOT). Some
details are given about our new CCD detection system. We explore then the possibility to perform APV measurements with francium.
The low Trap-rad francium production rates should allow to perform preliminary tests. With higher rates attainable in other
accelerator facilities, it should be possible to begin a francium APV experiment.
