• Preliminary results from India-based Neutrino Observatory detector R &amp; D programme

We are currently developing and studying the performance of glass RPC prototypes, under the INO detector R &amp; D programme. While we were successful in building and characterising a large number of chambers using local glass, these have met with severe aging problems after a few months of continuous operation. We have then built a couple of RPCs using a Japanese glass. We report in this paper on our long term stability tests of these RPCs. We also present some of our recent results on tracking of cosmic ray muons in a stack of glass RPCs.

• Angular distribution of cosmic muons using INO–ICAL prototype detector at TIFR

The India-based Neutrino Observatory Collaboration is planning to set up a magnetized 50 kt iron calorimeter (ICAL) with resistive plate chambers (RPC) as active detectors to study neutrino oscillations and precisely measure its parameters. A prototype detector stack is set up at TIFR ($18^{\circ}54'$N, $72^{\circ}48'$E) to track cosmic ray muons. Using the muon data, angular distribution of cosmic ray muons at the sea level is studied here.
