Title : Lattice Dynamical Study of Indium Phosphide (Inp)
Country : India
Authors : Suresh Chandra Pandey || Jay Prakash Dubey || Kripa Shankar Upadhyaya

ABSTRACT: The complete lattice dynamics (phonon dispersion curves, Debye temperatures variation, combined density of states (CDS) curves, two-phonon Raman and anharmonic elastic properties) of InP with zinc-blende structure has been investigated by van der Waal's three body force shell model (VTSM). This model incorporates the effect of van der Waal's interactions and three-body interactions into the rigid shell model of zinc blende structure, where the short range interactions are operative upto the second neighbours......

Title : Dependence Of The Parameters Of The Power–Gap Law On The Collision Energy And The Determination Of The Rotationally Inelastic Cross Sections For N2-He System
Country : India
Authors : Kavita Agrawal || Vinod Garg

ABSTRACT: The cross sections, σ (o  jf), for the rotational transitions in N2 due to collisions with He have been computed using the quantum mechanical modified infinite order sudden approximation (IOSAM) method, at six different values of collision energy ranging from 0.1eV to 0.5eV and have been analyzed by using the power-gap law. The parameters of the power-gap law are found to depend on the collision energy through simple equations. It is observed that the equations so obtained for the fitting parameters can lead to the prediction of the cross sections at any value of collision energy, within the range explored, in good agreement with the cross sections computed by the IOSAM method.

Keywords: Atom-diatomic molecule collisions, cross-sections, N2-He system, power-gap law, rotational energy transfer.

Title : Hydrothermal Synthesis of Titanium SBA-16 Mesoporous Materialusing Ultrasonic Treatment and Its Antibacterial Activities
Country : India
Authors : S.B.Shete || R. R. Rakh

ABSTRACT: Mesoporous molecular sieves in the hexagonal phase (SBA16) are synthesized from rice husk ash (R.H.A.) solutions using Pluronic F127 as template and R.H.A as silica source. It is found that R.H.A. effectively transformed into mesoporous materials depending upon the hydrothermal conditions. It is also found that a high concentration of Na+ ions is not critical in the formation of SBA - 16 when prepared under controlled pH of gel, calcinations temperature and calcinations duration conditions. We provide direct evidence of SBA -16.....

ABSTRACT: In this paper we investigate the absorption in gold rod nanostructure on glass substrate. The gold nanostructure unit cell is composed of two gold rods of unequal lengths. The simulation results show absorption peaks at resonance wavelengths of 803.6 nm for the superradiant and 1089.3nm for the subradiant modes respectively. The experimental measurements show absorption peaks at the resonance wavelength of 781.2 nm and 1083.3nm respectively. The measured experimental absorption peaks in the fabricated structure
atresonance is found to be in agreement with the results from simulation

Country : South Korea
Authors : I.J Lugendo

ABSTRACT:An experiment was conducted to study the performance of thallium doped sodium iodide (NaI(Tl)) scintillators in measuring the lifetimes of nuclear excited states that are just above 1 ns. A bench top setup with two similar NaI(Tl) detectors was used to measure the lifetime of Yrast Iπ = 2+ state in 152Sm via γ – γ coincidences. Results showed high precision of the timing system used and the accuracy of measurement confirming the suitability of NaI(Tl) scintillators in measuring lifetimes longer than 1 ns.

Title : Determination of Photon Interaction Parameters of CaO and MgO for Multi-Energetic Photonsusingγ-Ray Attenuation Technique
Country : India
Authors : A.S. MadhusudhanRao || Hagos Tsegay

ABSTRACT: Mass attenuation coefficients(μm) ofCaO and MgOat different γ-energies were determined experimentally using narrow collimated beam transmission method. The samplewas irradiated with radioactive point source of different γ-energies viz. Am (0.0595MeV), Cs (0.66MeV), Co (1.173MeV & 1.332MeV). The transmitted γ- photons were detected and recorded by a NaI(TI) scintillation detector with resolution of 8.5% for 0.662MeV of 137Cs. Theoretical mass attenuation coefficients were estimated using mixture rule.........

Keywords: Mass attenuation coefficient, linear attenuation coefficient, effective atomic number, effective electron density.

Title : Hydrothermal Growth of ZnO Nanostructures on Seed Layer Coated Substrates and their Characterization
Country : India
Authors : Shrisha B. V || Shashidhara Bhat || Parvathy Venu M || K Gopalakrishna Naik

ABSTRACT: Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanostructures were grown on ZnO seed layer deposited glass, ITO coated glass, quartz and p-silicon (p-Si) substrates by hydrothermal method. The structural, morphological and optical properties of the grown ZnO nanostructures were characterized by XRD, FESEM and UV-visible spectroscopy. The elemental compositions of the samples were investigated by EDS.

Title : Optical Transition Probabilities of Er3+ doped TiO2 Prepared via Sol-Gel
Country : Iraq
Authors : Hanaa M. Yaseen || Bassam G. Rasheed || Sabah N. Mazhir

ABSTRACT: Spectroscopic properties of Er:TiO2 samples have been investigated at room temperature, the samples are prepared with different doping rate by using Sol Gel method. A Judd-Ofelt analysis is used to analysis the UV- Visible spectra (in range of 400-900nm) and calculate the three Judd-ofelt of parameters; Ω2, Ω4 and Ω6. From the obtained parameters, the radiative transition probabilities A(J;J'), radiative lifetime τrad and fluorescence branching ratio were calculated.........

Title : Effect of the Temperature at (700 Hpa) on Surface Turbulence Over Iraq And Some Neighboring Countries
Country : Iraq
Authors : Hussain Abodi Nemah

ABSTRACT: The temperature is considered as the most important variable that control air masses in all of the atmosphere, and it also effect on general circulation model over earth because it is the main source of energy transfer for air masses. The propose adopted in this work is based on daily data analysis sourced from national centre for environmental prediction (NCEP) , The study select one turbulence day has cyclonic air mass with large dust storm on (5/6/2009) , and wind source direction was from north–west country of Iraq.....
