This effect, which is also called recoilless nuclear resonance recoilless nuclear resonant fluorescence, was discovered by a German scientist, R. L. Mossbauer in 1957. Since its discovery this effect has become an important tool in basic physics research. Its principle applications are in the following areas 1 theory of relativity 2 nuclear structure 3 solid state physics and 4 nuclear timer. The article also briefly describes the principle of Mossbauer effect, its application in the above four areas and problems related to the experimental research.
