Mössbauer Effect in Radioactive Materials

  • A. J. F. Boyle
  • G. J. Perlow


The general considerations that apply to using unstable isotopes as the absorbing nuclei for the Mössbauer effect are discussed. Preliminary results of various workers with the isotopes 2.6-year Pm147, 7.2-year Ba133, 87-year Sm151, and 47-hr Sm153 are discussed as examples of the techniques involved.
