Effective interactions and charges in^{58}Ni
The structure of the low-lying states of^{58}Ni has been calculated in shell model by assuming an inert^{56}Ni core plus two valence nucleons in the p_{3/2}, f_{5/2} and p_{1/2} orbitals. The two-body matrix elements are first expressed in terms of seven radial matrix elements and these are then parametrized to give best fit between the computed and the observed energies of the levels below 4 MeV. The wave-functions obtained using these two-body matrix elements are used to study the concept of effective charges. It is found that a single effective charge is not sufficient to predict the

Beta-gamma-gamma directional correlation in^{103}Rh
Spins and parities of the 650, 537 and 93 keV levels of^{103}Rh are deduced by triple angular correlation and the internal conversion coefficient studies. Multipolarities of the transitions are also determined.

Some of the low-lying states in many isotopes^{144}Nd,^{148}Sm,^{152}Gd and^{156}Gd show a similar typical behaviour. The first 2^{+} is regarded as a single quadrupole phonon state and 3^{−} as a single octupole phonon state. The levels with the spins and parities 1^{−}, 5^{−}, 3^{−}, 4^{−}, etc. are considered due to the simultaneous excitation of quadrupole and octupole phonons. If this consideration is correct, then the transition from

Optimization of deconvolution in Compton profile measurements
The method of generalized least squares has been used to deconvolute the Compton profile measurements in nickel. The method depends on two arbitrary parameters namely the cut-off parameter

We have synthesized, characterized and studied the third-order nonlinear optical properties of two different nanostructures of polydiacetylene (PDA), PDA nanocrystals and PDA nanovesicles, along with silver nanoparticles-decorated PDA nanovesicles. The second molecular hyperpolarizability $\gamma (−\omega; \omega,−\omega,\omega$) of the samples has been investigated by antiresonant ring interferometric nonlinear spectroscopic (ARINS) technique using femtosecond mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser in the spectral range of 720–820 nm. The observed spectral dispersion of $\gamma$ has been explained in the framework of three-essential states model and a correlation between the electronic structure and optical nonlinearity of the samples has been established. The energy of two-photon state, transition dipole moments and linewidth of the transitions have been estimated. We have observed that the nonlinear optical properties of PDA nanocrystals and nanovesicles are different because of the influence of chain coupling effects facilitated by the chain packing geometry of the monomers. On the other hand, our investigation reveals that the spectral dispersion characteristic of $\gamma$ for silver nanoparticles-coated PDA nanovesicles is qualitatively similar to that observed for the uncoated PDA nanovesicles but bears no resemblance to that observed in silver nanoparticles. The presence of silver nanoparticles increases the $\gamma$ values of the coated nanovesicles slightly as compared to that of the uncoated nanovesicles, suggesting a definite but weak coupling between the free electrons of the metal nanoparticles and $\pi$ electrons of the polymer in the composite system. Our comparative studies show that the arrangement of polymer chains in polydiacetylene nanocrystals is more favourable for higher nonlinearity.
