Active part of Mössbauer source is prepared by electrodepositing high purity carrier-free ⁵⁷Co onto a thin metal backing (matrix) followed by controlled annealing process. Standard matrix is rhodium. Active part is placed into titanium alloy holder with brazed beryllium window and sealed with laser welding.
The source is a beryllium capsule with active part inside, inserted into a titanium alloy holder. The holder is a single-piece element with truncated cone shaped front end and threaded tail piece. Source active part is a metal matrix with thermally diffused 57Co isotope. Source tightness is achieved by glued and welded joints.
