Abstract : A method for observing nuclear resonance absorption in metallic single crystals is reported. The thick-sample method described appears to be applicable to a wide variety of pure metals and alloys, in single crystal or polycrystalline form. In cases where the signal to noise ratio is unfavorable, simple geometry applications are not adequate. However, the total surface of the sample can be increased by cutting slots in the crystal or by stacking several thick crystals.Anisotropic effects in single crystals of noncubic metals will be of particular interest. Pure quadrupole resonance and relaxation time measurements on single metallic crystals should also be possible. (Author)
