We study the potential of a method for manipulating the spectral-temporal characteristics of the Mössbauer γ photon on the basis of resonant interaction of the electromagnetic field of a single photon with an oscillating nuclear absorber. It is shown that the absorber enrichment by a resonant nuclide and an increase in its optical density allow one to considerably increase the peak probability of detecting the photon behind the absorber and improve the obtained-pulse shape. The estimates for the γ radiation of the Mössbauer nuclide 57 Co with a photon energy of 14.4 keV and a lifetime of 141 ns of the excited state, which interacts with the oscillating resonant absorber enriched by the 57 Fe nuclei, are given and the possibility of compressing the waveform of an incident photon into a train of pulses with durations of 10 ns and peak intensity two times exceeding that in the absence of the absorber is shown.
