The use of n-capture gamma rays for studies of some topics in condensed matter physics is reviewed. These include the study of Debye temperatures of some metallic elements and molecular gases. Properties of 2-dimensional systems such as adsorbed gases on graphite and also of graphite intercalated compounds are discussed in detail. In particular, the zero-point energies of the vibrational and librational potentials of the molecules with respect to the adsorbing surfaces was determined.
