We present the first experimental observation of the Rabi splitting of Mössbauer resonance lines. A radio-frequency magnetic field is tuned to induce transitions between hyperfine sublevels of the Zeeman-split excited or ground state of Fe57 nuclei. The line splitting corresponding to the Rabi flopping frequency is observed using a magnetically soft FeNi57 absorber foil of composition with almost zero magnetostriction.
