Mössbauer Spectroscopy

Mössbauer spectroscopy is a special type of gamma‑ray spectroscopy, which is primarily used for non-destructive study of iron containing materials. This method enables to gain extremely accurate qualitative and quantitative information about both valence state and iron coordination environment. 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 high temperatures (up to 1300 K) as well as at low temperatures (down to 1.5 K). It is also possible to perform analyses in external magnetic field, up to 8T.

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

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