Abstract

Nuclear resonant scattering of γ rays from an (n, γ) source can be used for deducing the Debye temperatures θd of certain elemental components in any chemical compound in general and in metal hydrides in particular. The scattering process is described briefly and available resonance scatterers are tabulated. The advantages and disadvantages of this method with respect to its application to metal hydrides are discussed. The information obtained so far for metal hydrides by utilizing nuclear resonances in 62Ni and 48Ti is presented. Some suggestions for utilizing the technique described here in future investigations of Debye temperatures in hydrides are proposed.
