IBAME Vice Chair


Prof. Yann Garcia, elected as Vice chair IBAME (International Board on the Applications of the Mössbauer effect)

The objectives of this Board are to advance the diffusion of knowledge in the field of the Mössbauer Effect and its
applications, to promote the activities of the international community in this interdisciplinary field of basic and applied
research, to attempt the harmonization of venues and dates of the various international and continental Mössbauer
conferences to avoid duplications, and to encourage the participation of young research workers and research workers of
weak resource countries. Furthermore, the Board elaborates recommendations for the nomenclature to be used in
publications on results achieved by using Mössbauer spectroscopy. In this context, 'Mössbauer spectroscopy' is used in a
general sense including both laboratory and synchrotron-radiation techniques related to the Mössbauer Effect the latter
group including nuclear resonance scattering of synchrotron radiation, nuclear inelastic scattering of synchrotron radiation
and synchrotron-radiation-based perturbed angular correlation. Mössbauer spectroscopy includes not only experimental
techniques as applied in physics, chemistry, materials sciences, life sciences, earth sciences, space research, archaeology, environmental sciences, etc. but also the theory and data evaluation techniques connected to the method.
