Mössbauer Studies of Rare-Earth Intermetallic Compounds
In recent years the Mössbauer effect has been successfully used for studies of the magnetic properties of iron compounds . Although the rare-earth region is rich in Mössbauer isotopes (see Table I)  and the rare-earth compounds ‘have a vast variety of magnetic properties, only a few studies have been reported (see Table II) . In this short review the possibilities of the Mössbauer effect in studying rare-earth magnetic properties will be demonstrated by studies of rare-earth intermetallic compounds. Most of the work discussed here has been published in a few recent papers[3–9].
