Mössbauer Spectroscopy Applied to Inorganic Materials

  • V. Kozhukharov

Undoubtedly there is special interest focused on the capability of Mössbauer effect spectroscopy as a useful technique for the elucidation of scientific problems in structural chemistry and bonding phenomena in inorganic materials. In the present discussion an attempt has been made to summarize some of the basic and important aspects in interpretation of spectral analysis by means of application on a routine base, of Mössbauer spectroscopy in materials science. A number of applications extracted mainly from data in the literature have been used for different kind of inorganic materials (including glasses and ceramic materials) to illustrate the kind of information one may obtain from the Mossbauer spectra with 57Fe, 119Sn 125Te and 121Sb types of Mössbauer isotopes.
