Electron scattering provides essential information on the internal structure of atomic nuclei. A new scheme, SCRIT (Self Confining Radioactive Isotope Target), is proposed to study the internal structure of short-lived unstable nuclei by electron scattering. A numerical simulation shows that SCRIT provides a sufficiently high luminosity for electron-scattering experiments to measure the charge form factor. A feasibility study of this new scheme is now underway at an existing electron storage ring.
