Mössbauer-Effect Spectroscopy as a Probe for Surface Interactions

  • W. K. Rudloff
Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 8)


Since the Mössbauer effect is very sensitive to small changes in the electronic environment of Mössbauer active nuclei, Mössbauer-effect spectroscopy may be used to investigate interactions on surfaces. These include adsorption phenomena and heterogeneous catalytic reactions. A critical literature review on the subject matter will finally lead to a discussion on some of our preliminary results on interactions of gas molecules with an adsorber of large surface area.
