Nuclear orbiting and anomalies in nuclear reactions
A De A Mitra A Ray SR Banerjee M Sengupta A Chatterjee S Kailas HS Patel MG Betigiri SK Dutta
In this paper, we report our measurements of back-angle oxygen and carbon particle yields from 16O+89Y, 12C+93Nb reactions forming the same compound nucleus 105Ag at the same excitation energy and spin distribution. We find anomalously large oxygen yield and entrance channel dependence at high excitation energies from 16O+89Y reaction implying formation of a dinuclear orbiting complex. Possible connection between nuclear orbiting and fast fission is also discussed.

Two-stream plasma instability as a potential mechanism for particle escape from the Venusian ionosphere
S DEY S GHOSH D MAITY A DE S CHANDRA
In this work, we investigate the possibility of two-stream instability in the Venusian atmosphere leading to momentum transfer, then to the subsequent escape of hydrogen and oxygen ions from the ionosphere.We employthe hydrodynamic model and obtain the linear dispersion relation from which the two-stream instability is studied. Further, the interaction of solar wind with the ions of Venus ionosphere from which the instability sets in, has beenstudied using the data from ASPERA-4 of Venus express. The data support the fact that the two-stream instability can provide sufficient energy to accelerate ions to escape velocity of the planet and thus leave the Venusian ionosphere.
