Fourier analysis of the time evolution of the nuclear Bragg scattering from the (7, 7, 7) reflection in α-hematite (57Fe) excited by synchrotron radiation was used to extract values of Zeeman splitting of the ground and 14.413-keV states of57Fe in the crystal magnetic field. The results so obtained apparently do not agree with the corresponding values obtained from Mössbauer spectroscopy on α-hematite. Possible reasons for the discrepancy are discussed.
