Mössbauer Spectroscopy

Mössbauer spectroscopy is a special type of gamma‑ray spectroscopy, which is primarily used for non-destructive study of iron containing materials. Using this method, both qualitative and quantitative information about valence state and iron coordination environment is obtained with extreme precision. For this purposes, our laboratory is equipped with several Mössbauer spectrometers. These instruments operate in transmission, conversion and backscattering regimes. It is possible to analyse samples both in the bulk or and at the surface. Samples can be analysed at both high temperatures (up to 1300 K) and low temperatures (down to 1.5 K). It is also possible to perform analyses in external magnetic field, up to 8T.

Mössbauer spectroscometersare designed and constructed in our laboratories and are sold worldwide.

Mössbauer spectroscopy is suitable for solid samples only (including frozen liquids).
