Abstract: A traditional approach of simulating floating inductance in active gyrator of OTA of equal transconductance is successively used in obtaining LC ladder consisting of four stages .The calculations done on floating inductance evaluate the respective cut off frequencies as expected from the calculation of resonant frequency. The equal transconductance of gyrators is more advantageous in the low pass filter design. A unified approach of gyrator LC filter with floating inductor is successively used for studying the response. This has the property of reducing noises at high frequency signal processing applications.

Title : UHF Emission due to Bremsstrahlung from Lightning Return Stroke
Country : India
Authors : Mahendra Singh
: 10.9790/4861-0330407      logo

Abstract: Assuming lightning discharge as plasma it is argued that the high electric field of return stroke produces energetic electrons (≥ 100 keV) and colliding energetic particles give rise to Bremsstrahlung which is a possible source of UHF emissions. The computed power of UHF wave for time and frequency responses is reported. In this theoretical study it is shown that a measurable amount of Bremsstrahlung power in UHF or microwave regions is generated by return stroke.

Abstract: The performance evaluation of an adjustable and collapsible natural convection solar food dryer, capable of taking 14,688 pieces equivalent to 16.52kg of fresh groundnut with maximum moisture content of 35%, at maximum capacity of 3.39m2, and 3,672 pieces equivalent to 4.06kg of groundnut at minimum capacity of 0.8475m2, was carried out. The solar food dryer with air vents gap diameter of 10cm was tested at Sokoto Energy Research Centre from 29th September 2012 to 1st October 2012. It was used to dry 6kg of groundnut per day for three consecutive days. After drying for about 8 hours each day, it was found that the mass of the groundnut reduced to 4.5kg in the first day, 4.0kg in the second day and 3.5kg in the third day. At the end of the study, the collector's efficiency was 28.3% , dryer's efficiency was 23.0% and the system efficiency was 81.3%, while the drying rate of groundnut was 0.25kg/hr

Title : Maximum Limit of Rotational energy transfers in C2 - He system and Power gap law
Country : India
Authors : N. K. Dabkara, D. S. Firozia, G.Ahirwar

Abstract: Theoretical importance of the classical limit of the maximum rotational energy transfer, (ΔE)max, it has been reviewed for a two dimensional hard ellipsoid potential model over a wide range of energies, reduced mass of the system. It has been found that (ΔE)max, is comparable with a well-known parameter lΔEl* given by the two parameter Power- gap law. The numerical equivalence of (ΔE)max and lΔEl* has been verified for different collision energy of the atom - diatom system. Such equivalence suggests that the value of (ΔE)max can be used as one parameter lΔEl* of the power -gap law. The salient feature of the research helps to develop several techniques in field of rotationally energy transfer inelastic collision in atom- diatom systems.

Keywords:- Rotational energy transfer, Diatomic collision and scattering cross section.

Title : Effect of Gravity Modulation on the Onset of Ferroconvection in a Densely Packed Porous Layer
Country : India
Authors : Nisha Mary Thomas, S. Maruthamanikandan
: 10.9790/4861-0333040      logo

Abstract: The stability of a horizontal porous layer of a ferromagnetic fluid heated from below is studied when the fluid layer is subject to a time-periodic body force. Modified Darcy law is used to describe the fluid motion. The effect of gravity modulation is treated by a perturbation expansion in powers of the amplitude of modulation. The stability of the system, characterized by a correction Rayleigh number, is determined as a function of the frequency of modulation, magnetic parameters, and Vadasz number. It is found that subcritical instability is possible for low frequency g-jitter and that the magnetic and g-jitter mechanisms work against each other for small and moderate values of frequency of modulation. The effect of Vadasz number is shown to be reinforcing the influence of gravity modulation for small and moderate values of frequency. The magnetic, porous and modulation effects disappear altogether for sufficiently large values of the frequency of modulation.

Keywords- Ferromagnetic fluid, Gravity modulation, Perturbation method, Porous layer, Stability.

Abstract: The CdxZn1-xS (x=00, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0) were prepared by using Chemical Bath Deposition (CBD) Technique. The prepared CdxZn1-xS thin films were characterized by X-ray diffractometer (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The structural and morphological properties have been investigated. XRD pattern exhibits the hexagonal crystal structure of CdxZn1-xS. The dark electrical resistivity measurement was carried out in the temperature range 298 to 383 K by using two point probe method. The dark resistivity measurement shows that the prepared CdxZn1-xS thin films have high resistivity. The dark resistivity at room temperature was found to be of the order of ≥105 Ω cm for pure CdS and ≥106 Ω cm for CdxZn1-xS thin films. The dark resistivity was observed increased with Zn content.

Abstract: The fabrication, characterization and electric measurement of Polythiophene and Carbon Nanotube (CNT) composite is described. The Polythiophene (PTh) and Polythiophene/ Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube (PTh/MWCNT) composite are prepared chemically by oxidative Polymerization of Thiophene (Th). The formation of PTh and incorporation of CNTs into PTh are confirmed by Fourier Transform – Infra Red spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Energy Dispersive X-Ray analysis (EDAX) analysis. Scanning Electron Microscopic (SEM) analysis revealed the formation of Polymer/CNT composite. SEM image of PTh shows a leaf like structure and image of PTh/MWCNT shows the incorporation of MWCNT into the PTh flakes. Atomic force microscopic (AFM) analysis shows the morphology of PTh and PTh/MWCNT. The structural features of Nanotube-Polymer association are observed by AFM studies. The electrical behavior of prepared samples is studied by measuring I-V characteristics at varying temperature. Conductivity shows a linear dependence on temperature and is also higher for PTh/MWCNT.

Abstract: Various methods like Chemical & Electrochemical Polymerization are used for obtaining polyaniline thin films on metallic electrodes. But thin films prepared by Plasma Polymerization are chemically inert, of uniform thickness and thermally stable.It is because of these reasons the present work was done using Plasma Polymerization technique to prepare thin films of polyaniline on Aluminium substrate and its elctrical properties were investigated.The electrical conductivity of the film formed was measured and found to be in the order of 10 -12 ohm-1cm-1. The electrical conductivity was considerably increased after doping the film by Iodine Vapours. The conductivity recorded after doping was of the order of 10 -5ohm-1cm-1. Thus by appropriate doping the conductivity of the Polyaniline film formed can be controlled and set to desired level.

Abstract: The effect of dopant Mg2+ on the growth process, crystalline properties of potassium acid phthalate (KAP) are investigated. Optically transparent single crystals were grown by a slow evaporation solution growth technique at a room temperature has been investigated. Single crystal XRD analysis reveals slight changes in the lattice parameters as a result of doping. The modes of vibration in the crystal lattice has been determined by FTIR analysis. The UV-Vis-NIR spectra revealed the transmission properties, thermal absorption properties of the pure and doped KAP crystals were investigated using thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential thermal analyses (DTA), Mechanical properties were studied using vickers microhardness tester. The doping result in morphological changes and significantly improves the second harmonic generation (SHG) efficiency of the host crystal.

Abstract: FAO-56 Model which is widely used in the world was used to estimate net long wave radiation (Rnl) in 19 weather stations spread in IRAQ for the time period(1980-2008) . Simple linear regression equations were found between the mean monthly values of (Rnl) and the mean monthly values of : mean air temperature (Tmean) , relative humidity (RH) and solar radiation ratio (Rs/Rso) for all stations which gave a highly correlation coefficients . For Iraq as a whole the correlation coefficients for these linear regression equations were (0.816 , -0.850 , 0.938) respectively. multiple regression equation was found between the mean monthly values of (Rnl) and the mean monthly values of all the following elements [Tmean , RH , Rs/Rso ] for Iraq which gave a highly correlation coefficient reach (0.975).
