The method of recoilless nuclear resonance absorption of gamma radiation was employed in investigating the temperature dependence of the nuclear quadrupole interaction in the 8.4-keV level of Tm169 in thulium ethyl sulfate, Tm(C2H5SO4)3•9H2O. The experiment reveals a strong influence of electronic shielding resulting from the polarization induced in the closed electron shells by the crystalline electric field.
