Internal Standardization in Mossbauer Spectrometry

Volume 25, Number 4 (Aug. 1971) Page 472-474

Pella, P.A.; DeVoe, J.R.

The concept of internal standardization is applied to Mössbauer spectrometry using SnO2 and β-Sn as analyte and internal standard absorbers, respectively. One of the difficulties encountered in using the Mössbauer technique for assay work is that the Mössbauer gamma ray is accompanied by background radiation. Through simultaneous measurement of the analyte and internal standard absorbers, the background contribution can be eliminated.
