Mössbauer Spectroscopy is a microscopic probe which is often used to characterize the chemical, structural, electrical and magnetic properties of materials. After reviewing the basic components of the spectrometer, I will present three examples to demonstrate the unique ability of this technique. These examples include new and critical details of conductivity in magnetite, direct measurement of cation distribution in titanomagnetites, and the disordered magnetic states in (Ge,Si)-Fe-O nanoparticles.
