In most recoilless gamma-ray resonance experiments the magnetic-dipole and electric-quadrupole hyperfine interaction do not cause any shift of the center of gravity of the velocity spectrum. This is usually related to the fact that the trace of the hyperfine-interaction Hamiltonian is zero. Nevertheless a large shift can be caused under proper conditions by a magnetic hyperfine interaction in second order, the so-called "pseudoquadrupole" interaction.(1) This paper reports the first observation of the pseudoquadrupole shift of gamma lines.(2)
