Mössbauer Spectrometers

Following to our long-term experiences, we offer complete Mössbauer spectroscopy instrumental support

Mössbauer Spectroscopy
  • Mössbauer spectroscopy (MS) is based on resonant emission and absorption of gamma rays.
  • MS is used to study various sample types (including both nano-sized objects and bulk materials) with specific nuclei.
  • MS gives both physical and chemical structure information.
  • MS is extremely precise, non-destructive analysis technique.
  • MS is capable to analyze samples with low-concentration of specific nuclei.
  • MS is limited on solid samples only (frozen liquids are also suitable).
  • Radioactive source is required for MS.
