“Discovered by Rudolph L. Mössbauer in 1957, the Mössbauer effect (i.e. gamma-resonance spectroscopy) is the phenomenon of the emission or absorption of a gamma ray without loss of energy due to recoil of the nucleus and without thermal broadening. This technique has been applied to many science fields (e.g., physics, chemistry, geology, biology), since it provides information about the nuclear and electronic properties of materials. In this paper, a review of works focusing on the application of 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy study of the meteoritic Fe-Ni system will be reported.”
