MOS: Mossbauer Effect
The recoil-less emission
of nuclear photons is used to study the hyperfine nuclear structure of 57Fe
and some solid state features of crystalline Fe. Rudolf Mössbauer won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1961.
(The experiment is currently located in MP239; last write-up revision: October 2014.)
