Abstract

The small portion of science now known almost universally as the Mössbauer effect is entering its second quarter century of activity. In reaching its “adult” years, the technique has grown rapidly from a small, highly specialized solid-state and nuclear physics technique to a widely used and effective form of spectroscopy which provides a wealth of information about both the nuclear and electronic properties of materials. Mössbauer-effect spectroscopy has become an integral part of the education of chemistry and physics graduate students and is found in many undergraduate textbooks in chemistry, physics, and geology. The Mössbauer-effect experiment, especially when using the iron-57 nuclide, is so simple and straightforward that it is now an integral part of many physics and some chemistry undergraduate laboratory curricula.
