The Mössbauer spectroscopy of polycrystalline Y3−xCaxFe5−xTixO12 (x=0·2, 0·5, 0·7) garnets has been studied at room temperature. The hyperfine fields both at the octahedral and tetrahedral sites decrease with increasing titanium content. The hyperfine fields both ata andd-sites are linearly proportional to magnetization. The quadrupole splitting fora-site shows no dependence on Ti content while the quadrupole splitting ford-site increases slightly withx. The results are explained on the basis of lattice distortion due to Ti substitution ona-site.
