Volume 2 presents the latest applications of Mossbauer spectroscopy to the study of magnetic materials. The topics include: surface and thin film analysis, iron-based amorphous ribbons and wires, diffusion studies, analytical methods for Mossbauer spectral analysis of complex materials, and quasicrystalline materials among others. These discussions will be invaluable to materials scientists, inorganic chemists, and solid-state chemists.
