Abstract

Measurements were performed on the angular distribution of x-rays following internal conversion in the decay of191mIr oriented at low temperatures. The anisotropies of a series of L x-rays observed at 30° with respect to the orientation direction are in agreement with theoretical calculations. No anisotropy was observed for the K x-rays within the present experimental accuracy of 10−3. The high degree of circular polarization of the L and K x-rays was used to study the spin dependence of the photoabsorption in magnetized Fe.
