To finish this topic, let us look at a few concepts, reasonings and examples that you will inevitably meet when reading about Mössbauer spectroscopy. You will learn what makes an isotope suitable for Mössbauer spectroscopy, what are the advantages of using Mössbauer spectroscopy in a radioactive beam facility, how a tweak of the method makes it suitable for surfaces, and how and why scientists perform Mössbauer spectroscopy on planet Mars. If you want to play with Mössbauer spectra yourself, pointers to some available (free) software are given.
