The effect of the methods of preparation on the Mössbauer spectrum of an Fe-Ge intermetallic compound

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A comparative study was carried out on the effect of the methods of preparation on the Mössbauer spectrum of the β-Fe5Ge3 phase. The disagreements between the various reported spectra for the β-phase can be attributed to variations in the stochiometry of the final product. Sintering seems to be the best way to prepare the β-phase, while melting of the iron-germanium powders resulted in evaporation and considerable loss of germanium. The various methods of preparation were subjected to chemical analysis and X-ray diffraction.
