Coherent Optical Control of Mössbauer Spectra Academic Article uri icon


  • A compound nuclear-electron system driven by a coherent optical field and probed at the gamma-ray Mössbauer transition is analyzed for the first time. The possibility of optical control of the Mössbauer spectra is predicted. This study provides the basis for a new branch of spectroscopy, laser-Mössbauer spectroscopy, and opens prospects for the realization of a gamma-ray laser. © 1999 The American Physical Society.
