A review of recent studies using the nuclear resonance photon scattering (NRPS) from 15N occurring in several gases is presented. In particular, new results on the adsorption and molecular orientation of N2, N2O and NO2 on graphite are given and compared with theoretical calculations using molecular dynamics simulations (MDS). In another application, we studied the scattering of photons from NO2 occurring in solid NaNO2. The results were compared with those of adsorbed NO2 on graphite. A huge difference in the scattering cross section of the two systems was observed and explained.
