Conference paper


In this paper the factors which are responsible for precision and reliability of the experimental data are discussed. The detectors of different types are compared with respect to the precision of the final results. It is shown that the use of resonance detectors gives the best results in most cases of the Sn-119m Mössbauer spectroscopy. The estimation of spectral line distortion caused by a short distance between source and detector is presented. Different procedures of velocity scale calibration are discussed. It has to be underlined that Kuprijanov’s method of the velocity scale calibration gives the most reliable and fast results.
