Paper Abstract

We have developed a high-resolution monochromator (HRM) for the measurement of nuclear resonant scattering (NRS) of synchrotron radiation by Te-125 at 35.49 keV using the backscattering of sapphire (9 1 -10 68). HRMs for nuclei with excitation energies less than 30 keV have been successfully developed using high angle diffractions by silicon crystals. Nearly perfect silicon crystal, however, is not suitable for high efficient HRMs at higher energy regions because the symmetry of the crystal structure is high and the Debye-temperature is low. Therefore, we used high quality synthetic sapphire crystal, which has low symmetry of crystal structure and high Debye-temperature. The temperature of the crystal was precisely controlled around 218 K to diffract synchrotron radiation with a Bragg angle of π/2 - 0.52 mrad. Energy was tuned by changing the crystal temperature under the condition of constant diffraction angle. Energy resolution was measured by detecting nuclear forward scattering by Te-125 in enriched TeO2. The relative energy resolution of 2.1×10-7 is achieved, that is 7.5 meV in energy bandwidth. This HRM opens studies on element-specific dynamics and electronic state of substances containing Te-125.
