Vacuum deposited blackish indium oxide films (In-O) as well as the oxidised films (In2O3) were studied for their a.c. behaviour at different temperatures and at various film thicknesses in the audio frequency region. ε of In-O films was thickness dependent and also showed dielectric relaxation at lower frequencies due to the dipolar orientation arising from their non-stoichiometric nature. However at liquid nitrogen temperature region ε was thickness independent similar to the oxidised films which neither showed any relaxation effect nor any thickness dependent ε. The results have been discussed from the classical theory of dielectric polarisation.

Fractional independent yields of fission products in the thermal neutron-induced fission of233U,235U,239Pu,241Pu and in the spontaneous fission of252Cf have been correlated with the neutron-to-proton ratio of the fission products. The yields of the products from a fissioning system, when plotted as a function of neutron-to-proton (

Excitation functions for evaporation residues of the system 16O + 165Ho have been measured up to 100 MeV. Recoil range distribution of long lived reaction products were measured at 16O beam energy of 100 MeV. Detailed Monte Carlo simulation of recoil range distributions of products were performed with the help of PACE2 code, in order to extract the contributions of incomplete fusion in the individual channels. The results clearly show the incomplete fusion contributions in the tantalum and thulium products. This is confirmed by the predictions of breakup fusion model of the incomplete fusion.

This paper describes the design of a spiral inflector for inflecting heavy ion beams into the existing central region of the K = 130 Variable Energy Cyclotron at Kolkata. Simulation results of transverse beam dynamics through the spiral inflector and the effect of the fringe field on beam phase ellipses at its exit have been discussed in the absence of space charge effect. We have also made an effort to minimise the effect of inflector fringe field by properly adjusting the inflector voltage. The proper matching conditions in the central region have been obtained by optimising the system parameters of the existing axial injection line of K130 cyclotron. The tracking of particles that belong to the boundary of the optimised phase ellipses at the matching point has also been carried out in the computed electric and magnetic fields in the central region. Simulation results confirm that the optimised beam condition reduces beam losses for further acceleration in the cyclotron.

This paper describes the beam transmission characteristics through the spiral inflector and in the central region of the K500 superconducting cyclotron at VECC due to solenoid magnet misalignment in its vertical injection line. The equations of motion for a particle in misaligned solenoidal channel are derived from the Hamiltonian and used to investigate the behaviour of the beam during injection where the axial magnetic field of the cyclotron plays an important role. We have optimised the solenoid strength in the vertical line to reduce transmission loss in the spiral inflector and to match the beam in the central region of the cyclotron. The percentage of the accepted particle in the spiral inflector and in the central region are calculated for different values of translational and rotational misaligned parameters of the solenoids. The allowed tolerances of these parameters are obtained to get the desired injection efficiency.
