Transmission and conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy were used in order to get further information bout thé effect of hydrogenation in Fe89Zr11 amorphous alloys in connection with the observation that the magnetically split spectrum appearing at room temperature due to a moderate hydrogenation gradually collapses with increasing hydrogen content. The Mössbauer measurements were performed on differently hydrogenated amorphous samples aged at 150 °C 300 °C and 600 °C before the hydrogenation. The time dependence of hydrogenation has also been measured. From the changes of Mössbauer parameters depending on the annealing temperature as well as on the cathodic potential of hydrogenation (compared with the hydrogen concentration measured by gas chromatography) we can conclude that relaxation processes and structural changes, taking place in these amorphous alloys, influence the hydrogen uptake, already at relatively low temperatures.
