Abstract

A method using Mössbauer spectroscopy has been developed for estimating the degree of cylindrical texture in pellets of materials exemplified by the superconductor YBa2Cu3O7−x.The procedure can also be used to determine unambiguously the sign and orientation of the electric field gradient of a nonmagnetic species coexisting with a magnetically ordered one (or coexisting with another nonmagnetic species for which the sign and the orientation of the electric field gradient are known).
