Rare-gas-matrix isolated (RGMI) atoms and molecules have been studied in the last twenty years by different experimental methods: These experiments indicate that the atoms and molecules trapped in the rare-gas-matrix have properties very similar to those of the free species, demonstrating that the weak binding in these solids does not change appreciably the atomic and molecular configuration. Matrix isolation techniques have been applied recently to Mössbauer spectroscopy. The first successful rare-gas-matrix isolation Mössbauer experiment was carried out with iodine molecules (I2) imbedded in solid argon at 22K1. Since then this technique has been extended to 57Fe,2 119Sn 3, and 125Te 4.
