Mössbauer Spectroscopy of 161Dy In Dysprosium Dicarboxylates Chapter uri icon


  • © 2014 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. The authors report here on a similar 161Dy Mössbauer spectroscopic study for the Dy dicarboxylates with different chain lengths, from oxalate (ox) (n=0) to pimelate (pim) (n=5). While four nuclides and six transitions for the element of dysprosium are known to show the Mössbauer effect, 161Dy spectrum with 25.7 keV transition between Ie = 5/2 and Ig = 5/2 is most commonly used for physical and chemical studies due to its narrow linewidth and its high recoilless fraction. To establish if the Dy salt contained the appropriate anion, the infrared spectra of the dysprosium and sodium salts were measured. Dy3+ with its higher total angular momentum and smaller size than Eu3+ has a more pronounced effect in its coupling. The coupling is even stronger with smaller ligands such as the oxalate ion than with the larger ligands (pimelate).
