Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. M ssbauer spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique based on the recoil-free, resonant absorption and emission of gamma rays in solids. This resonant emission and absorption was first observed by Rudolf M ssbauer during his graduate studies in 1957, and is called the M ssbauer effect in his honor. M ssbauer received a Nobel Prize in 1961 for this work. Like NMR spectroscopy, M ssbauer spectroscopy probes tiny changes in the energy levels of an atomic nucleus in response to its environment. Typically, three types of nuclear interaction may be observed: an isomer shift, also known as a chemical shift; quadrupole splitting; and, magnetic or hyperfine splitting, also known as the Zeeman effect. Due to the high energy and extremely narrow line widths of gamma rays, M ssbauer spectroscopy is one of the most sensitive techniques in terms of energy resolution, capable of detecting change in just a few parts per 1011.
