High-resolution monochromators for various nuclei have been developed at the nuclear resonant scattering beamline at SPring-8. In particular, monochromators for 57Fe are prepared with three different resolutions. The focusing optics of a Kirkpatrick-Baez mirror and compound refractive lenses have been installed in recent years. The available X-ray beam properties of the energy resolution and beam size at the transition energies of Mössbauer nuclei are summarized in this report.

The data were measured at the NRS beamline at SPring-8 with the approval of the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI) (Proposal Nos. 2011B2107, 2013A1898, 2016B1971 and 2017B1985). This work was supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), Grant No. 16H04172.
