    • Abstract


      Theoretical evaluations of frequency moments and second order Doppler shifts have been made for dilute57Fe impurities in the high temperature limit for a harmonic solid. The resonant energy shifts have been calculated from the Green’s function of the impure crystal containing both mass disordering and force constant change terms in the crystal Hamiltonian. High temperature frequency moments for the impurity in different metallic solids are obtained from Mc-Millan ratios using standard Mössbauerf-values at room temperature.

      The effect of mass disordering predominates over the force constant change term in the evaluations of second order Doppler shifts and hence the frequency moments for dilute57Fe impurities. The variation of frequency moments for the impurity with mass modified Debye-temperature of the hosts is shown for a number of metallic solids.
