Abstract : Radiation patterns and linear polarization of gamma rays from decay of Co57 and Ce141 aligned at low temperatures by Bleaney's method in cerium double nitrate were studied for evidence of intermediate-state reorientation in this crystal. Influence of spin-spin interactions should be negligible on theoretical grounds. Comparisons are made with Steenberg's theory of intermediatestate reorientation by static, isotropic hfs coupling in the hard-core limit, and with results of other nuclear alignment experiments involving the same isotopes.
