Mössbauer and heat capacity studies of ErZnSn2

Open access

Abstract

Heat capacity results obtained for the intermetallic compound ErZnSn2 were re-analysed to also consider, apart from the classical Debye model, the anharmonicity of the crystal lattice and the proper set of Einstein modes. The 119mSn Mössbauer technique was applied to derive the hyperfine interaction parameters characteristic of the two inequivalent crystallographic Sn sites in the compound studied. Quadrupole interaction constants, as measured by 119mSn Mössbauer spectroscopy, allowed for estimations of Vzz components of the electric field gradient tensor that exist at both Sn sites in the discussed compound.
