    • Application of holographic addition and subtraction to quadratic motion analysis

      P C Gupta K Singh

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Hologram interferometry of objects moving with constant acceleration has been investigated with special reference to the techniques of holographic addition and subtraction, which results in an extension of the range of measurement of conventional time average holography. Distribution of intensity in the fringes has been plotted for some typical cases.

    • Images of an incoherent annulus in the presence of transverse sinusoidal vibrations

      K Singh R Rattan

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The diffraction image of an incoherent bright annular test object is obtained by using Fourier transform method. The effect of transverse sinusoidal vibrations has been studied and results are given in graphical form for various sizes of the object. It is observed that in certain cases the presence of vibrations completely distorts the object. Hence a detailed analysis of image intensity distribution should prove useful in aerial reconnaissance work and performance evaluation tests.

      The electron capture probabilities to 690.70 and 580.37 keV levels and theK-conversion coefficients of 205.9 and 316.5 keV transitions in the decay of Ir-192 have been determined from the measurement of gamma-ray intensities in conjunction with an analysis of theKX-ray-γ-ray sum peaks observed with a co-axial HPGe detector. TheK-capture probability to 690.70 keV level was determined by an approach which is independent ofK-shell fluorescence yield and absolute detection efficiency forKX-rays. TheK-shell fluorescence yields of the daughter products, namely, Os and Pt of Ir-192 have also been determined by the same technique and were found to be 0.964±0.077 and 0.969±0.068 respectively.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The transmitted photon spectra of133Ba,22Na,137Cs,54Mn and60Co point sources are measured through different thicknesses of water, concrete and sand. The multiple-scatter peaks observed in these materials at 60, 90 and 100 keV energies respectively are found to be independent of incident photon energy and thickness of the medium.

    • Molar extinction coefficients of some carbohydrates in aqueous solutions

      K Singh GK Sandhu BS Lark SP Sud

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Molar extinction coefficients of some carbohydrates viz. l-arabinose (C5H10O5), d-glucose (C6H12O6), d-mannose (C6H12O6), d-galactose (C6H12O6), d(-) fructose (C6H12O6) and maltose (C12H24O12) in aqueous solutions have been determined at 81, 356, 511, 662, 1173 and 1332 keV by gamma ray transmission method in a narrow beam good geometry set-up. These coefficients have been found to depend upon the photon energy following a 4-parameter polynomial. These extinction coefficients for different sugars having the same molecular formula have same values varying within experimental uncertainty. Within concentration ranges studied, Beer-Lambert law is obeyed very well.

    • Observation of very low frequency emissions at Indian Antarctic station, Maitri

      R P Patel R P Singh Ashok K Singh A K Gwal D Hamar

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Recently, we have succeeded in recording VLF emissions at the Indian Antarctic station, Maitri (geom. lat. 62°S, geom. long. 57.23°E,L = 45) using a T-type antenna, pre/main amplifiers and digital audio tape recorder. VLF hiss in the frequency ranges 11–13 kHz and 13–14.5 kHz and some riser-type emissions in the frequency range 3–5 kHz and magnetospheric lines at about 6.2, 8.0 and 9.2 kHz are reported for the first time. The generation and propagation mechanism of these emissions are discussed briefly.
