Absolute transition probabilities are fundamental observables for nuclear structure. The recoil-distance-Doppler-shift (RDDS) technique, also called plunger technique, is a well established tool for the determination of these important experimental quantities via the measurement of lifetimes of excited nuclear states. Nowadays nuclear structure investigations are concentrated on exotic nuclei which are often produced with extremely small cross sections or with very low beam intensities. In order to use the RDDS technique also for the investigation of very exotic nuclei this method has to be adapted to the specific needs of these special reactions. This article gives an overview on recent RDDS measurements with the new differential plunger in combination with particle detectors and recoil spectrometers. These were done with projectile multistep Coulomb excitation at low beam energies (approx 5 MeV/u) and at intermediate beam energies (approx 100 MeV/u) using one step Coulomb excitations and knockout reactions.
