    Nuclear Resonant Scattering (NRS) is a technique analoguous to Mössbauer spectroscopy. In NRS a bunch of photons from synchrotron radiation is fired at a target. In the target the nuclei are excited by this radiation. Due to the energy width multiple hyperfine splitted levels are excited simultaneously. When the nucleus de-excites the different components interfere, creating an interference pattern in time. This pattern can be analysed to obtain the hyperfine shifts and splittings of the energy levels. This in turn can be used to investigate the environment of the nucleus. An advantage of NRS over Mössbauer spectroscopy is that synchrotron radiation has a higher brilliance and it is easier to get the right energy photons, making it applicable to a wide range of nuclei.
