Title: TEMPERATURE-DEPENDENT SHIFT OF $gamma$ RAYS EMITTED BY A SOLID

It is shown that the low-energy gamma rays emitted from nuclei in a solid which are unaffected by the Doppler effect are subject to a temperature- dependent shift to lower energy. It is demonstrated that this shift can be attributed to the relativistic time dilatation caused by the motion of nuclei. (C.J. G.)
