The investigation of indium halides and graphite intercalation compounds using time-differential perturbed angular correlation gamma-ray spectrosocopy Dong, Sunny Ronald


This thesis discusses in general terms the theory and application of time-differential perturbed angular correlation gamma-ray spectroscopy (TDPAC) to the study of solid state physics. The technique yields valuable information on the electric field gradients experienced by radionuclides which have been substituted for nonradioactive isotopes or inserted as impurities into various inorganic compounds. The indium halides are examined in a series of experiments. The first applications of this technique to the study of graphite intercalation compounds are discussed.
