The use of \(\alpha \)-transfer reactions, in combination with the Transient Field Technique, is an alternative to measure magnetic moments of low-spin states of radioactive nuclei which, otherwise, will be difficult to populate with the present beam facilities. In this contributions a short introduction to the technique and the challenges for future uses are presented.
