Nuclear Resonance Experiments Using Synchrotron Sources

  • R. L. Cohen
Part of the Topics in Current Physics book series (TCPHY, volume 25)


This chapter discusses the problems and possibilities of using synchrotron radiation X-rays to excite low-lying nuclear states. To date “single nucleus” excitations of 57Fe have been observed. Within the next year, synchrotron-excited nuclear Bragg scattering will probably be observed, opening the path to a number of hyper fine interaction and X-ray diffraction measurements. This chapter deals primarily with the advantages and disadvantages of the ingenious schemes which have been proposed to observe the nuclear Bragg scattering in the presence of the much stronger electronic Bragg scattering.
