Abstract

The energy of the recoil-free fraction of they rays emitted by nuclei bound in solids1 has been found to be affected by temperature and by electronic configuration. The latter effect has been named the "isomeric" shift. Compression of a solid should influence the energy through both of these mechanisms. We have measured the effect of hydrostatic compression at 295°K on the energy hν of the recoil-free 14.4-kev γ rays emitted by 0.1-μsec Fe^(57) bound in metallic iron.
