## isomer shift

in Mössbauer spectroscopy
https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.I03296
Measure of the energy difference between the source (E s) and the absorber (Ea) transition. The measured Doppler velocity shift, δ, is related to the energy difference by $E_{\text{a}}- E_{\text{s}}=\frac{\delta \ E_{\gamma }}{c}$ where E γ is the Mössbauer gamma energy and c is the speed of light in vacuum.
