pp 175-183 March 1980 Plasma Physics
Experimental investigations of the phenomena occurring when low density electron and plasma beams are injected into a nonadiabatic magnetic mirror are presented. Effects of nonadiabaticity and mirror ratio on the reflectivity of the magnetic mirror are measured. Transition of the mirror from adiabatic to strongly nonadiabatic results in setting up of a potential barrier which enhances the reflectivity.

The moment generating function of the integrated light intensity of thermal radiation having multiple peak spectrum is obtained. Cases of two-peak and three-peak spectra where different peaks are in orthogonal states of polarisation are considered. The moment generating function is shown to be the product of two simpler generating functions.

It has been shown that an analysis of radial stationary state wave functions of a particle in terms of their loops leads to such continuous, single-valued and finite functions which represent a practically convenient form of the radial wave packets of that particle at various positions. The radial wave packets have been used to investigate target distortion in electron-atom collisions. The distortion of the target is defined in terms of quantum-mechanical probabilities given by the wave packets. A closed expression which depends upon the position of the colliding electron, is obtained for the potential energy of the target in the field of the colliding electron.

Elastic scattering of electrons by hydrogen molecules has been investigated in the intermediate energy range 100–2000 eV. The direct scattering amplitude consists of first Börn and second Börn minus distortion term. The contribution of exchange has been included through Ochkur approximation. The elastic differential cross-sections agree with experimental data.
pp 209-217 March 1980 Solid State Physics
Using the continuum theory of linear elasticity, the Huang diffuse scattering from interstitials in an hcp lattice has been calculated to distinguish between the possible interstitial configurations. The symmetry of the lattice permits four such configurations. In each case, the Huang diffuse scattering is averaged over all possible equivalent orientations (assumed to be equally populated) of the defect configuration. The limitations of Huang diffuse scattering in discriminating between defect configurations having the same long-range symmetry are discussed, considering the specia I cases of Mg and Zn.
pp 219-222 March 1980 Experimental Techniques
A cryostat for x-irradiation of solid samples at liquid air temperature is described. The design of the sample mount in the cryostat enables quick transfer of the sample after x-irradiation into EPR cavity to facilitate EPR study without warming the sample.

The high spin yrast states uptoJ=22+ in182,184,186Os are studied in a microscopic variational approach with number-conserved projected states. The energy spectra, quadrupole, moments andB (E2) values are calculated by employing the Hamiltonian with quadrupole plus pairing interactions. The results of the calculations are in fair agreement with the available experimental data.
