A simple model to extract hyperfine interaction distributions from Mössbauer spectra

  • H. P. GunnlaugssonEmail author


The general problem of finding a distribution in hyperfine interaction parameters from experimental Mössbauer spectra is outlined. Existing methods may lack flexibility to be easily applicable to simple problems. A line shape for hyperfine parameter distributions is given, which is based on linear segments in the probability function. This method is applied in the analysis of samples containing iron in a silicate glass.
