Radioactive nuclei have a very deep relevance in many astrophysical scenarios, from the Big Bang nucleo-synthesis to supernova explosions. Several Nuclear Physics laboratories around the world have been constructing large-scale facilities for the production of Radioactive Ion Beams (RIBs). The main production techniques, i.e. In-Flight and Isotope Separation On Line, which will be reviewed in this contribution. In particular, we will concentrate on the production of light weakly-bound RIBs at the facility EXOTIC, located at INFN-LNL (Italy) and we will describe the most recent experiments.
