      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We present vibrating reed (VR) measurements on single crystal and ceramic “1-2-3” and melt-processed polycrystalline Bi-based compounds in a wide range of temperature (4·2–100 K) and magnetic field (B=0–4 T). The “depinning line” (DL) determined by the VR technique is equivalent to the “irreversibility line” determined by magnetization and susceptibility measurements. A comparison of the results on single crystal and polycrystalline 1-2-3 compounds indicates that the VR technique is sensitive to the intragranular properties of the polycrystalline reed. It is found that the DL for 1-2-3 compounds is much steeper than that for Bi-based compounds, reflecting an intrinsically different pinning in both the materials, in agreement with the measured elastic coupling (Labusch constant α(B, T)).

    • Preparation of silica monolith via sol-gel route

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The present investigation deals with the synthesis of monolithic NiCl2-silica gels obtained by hydrolysis and polycondensation of tetraethoxy silanes. This sol to gel formation can mainly be controlled by adjusting some variables e.g. acid content of the solution, ageing and leaching times. A minimum acid content was found necessary to prepare uncracked gel while ageing and leaching times were found to be not that sensitive for the formation of uncracked gels.
