Abstract

A method to generate long-lived isomeric states effectively for Mössbauer applications is reported. We demonstrate that this method is better and easier to provide highly sensitive Mössbauer effect of long-lived isomers (>1 ms) such as 103Rh. Excitation of (γ,γ) process by synchrotron radiation is painful due mainly to their limited linewidth. Instead, (γ,γ’) process of bremsstrahlung excitation is applied to create these long-lived isomers. Isomers of 45Sc, 107Ag, 109Ag, and 103Rh have been generated from this method. Among them, 103Rh is the only one that we have obtained the gravitational effect at room temperature.
