Title : Some Physical Properties of ZnO/SnO2 Thin Films Prepared By Spray Pyrolysis Technique
Country : Iraq
Authors : Suaadkhafory || Noor Talib || Mahdi HasanSuhail

ABSTRACT: ZnO/SnO2 thin films with different percentage (1:1,1:2,2:1) were deposited on a glass substrate by Spray Pyrolysis technique using solution of zinc acetate ,tin chloride and air as the carrier gas at 400 °C temperature. The structural properties of the composite films are investigated by x-ray diffraction andAFM. The optical spectra of the films were measured in the wavelength range of 300 –1100nm by UV-VIS Spectrometer device.Optical constants such as Absorption coefficient α, refractive index n , extinction coefficient k and dielectric constant were determined from transmittance spectrum in the UV-VIS regions. The films were found to exhibit high transmittance inthe visible regions. The energy band gapof the films were evaluated as 3.85,3.70,3.70,3.85 and 3.60 eV for ZnO pure,SnO2 pure and the percentage (1:1,1:2,2:1) of ZnO:SnO2 respectively.

Country : Iraq
Authors : Saleem Azara Hussain || Adel H. Omran A; lkhayatt || Eqbal Abduljalil Mahdi

ABSTRACT: In this work pure and Cobalt doped ZrO2 thin films were prepared by chemical spray pyrolysis on glass substrate at 450◦C .The structure properties have been investigated by using XRD, SEM and AFM. The XRD results show that the prepared films have polycrystalline structure in nature with tetragonal phase. The preferred orientation was along (011) plane, the intensity and the crystallite size nanostructured increased after doping process. The surface morphology SEM of ZrO2 thin film seems relatively homogeneous and plated regularly integrate the granules after doping and the EDX spectra confirm the stoichiometry of the prepared films.............

Title : Active Galactic Nuclei Influence the Genesis of Galaxies
Country : United States of America
Authors : Sanjay Sastry

ABSTRACT: Most or all spiral and elliptical galaxies were formed by quasars with supermassive black holes. The genesis of such galaxies occurred when the universe was young, approximately 5 billion years ago. Quasars are extremely bright masses of energy and light. They are high redshift sources of electromagnetic radiation. The quasar and the supermassive black hole form active galactic nuclei (AGN). The combination of quasars and its black hole engine formed large accretion disks as matter from the quasar. A considerable amount of matter from the accretion disk escaped the gravitational pull from the event horizon of the black hole. This matter led to the formation of stars, planets, asteroids, etc., after the quasar burned out. These eventually become spiral and elliptical galaxies.

Title : Evaluation of radiation dose rates due to calibration and interrogation neutron sources while using the AWCC in horizontal configuration
Country : Egypt
Authors : W. El-Gammal

ABSTRACT: The Active Well Neutron Coincidence Counter (AWCC) is a device that can be used for nuclear safeguards purposes to measure different types of Nuclear Material (NM) in different modes. The detector uses neutron sources either for calibration (252Cf) or for interrogation of NM (AmLi). The radiation dose due to such sources should be estimated for safety reasons. In this work radiation dose due to neutron sources is estimated using the MCNP code. The results could be taken into consideration while measuring NM with the AWCC in open horizontal configuration.

Title : Synthesis, Characterization AC Electrical Properties of Cd Doped with Nano Nickel Ferrite by Sol -Gel
Country : Iraq
Authors : Malik Jabbar || Farah T.M.Noori || Abdulhadi.Kadhim

ABSTRACT: Cadmium doping with nickel ferrite with general formula CdxNi1-xFe2O4 (x =0.0,0.1,0.3,0.5 and 0.7) has been prepared by using Sol-Gel method. The X-ray spectra shown indicate formationof crystalline cubic spinal phase ferrite, with appearance of smalls amount of secondary phases. The lattice parameter results were 8.38 0A - 8.4460A. Surface morphology features were studied by AFM and SEM. The dielectric measurement of the samples at room temperature studied in the frequency range 10 Hz to 5MHz shows dispersion in the low frequency region and remains constant at high frequency region. However, the small polar on hoping type of conduction mechanism was inferred from the linear increase of ACconductivity. It is also found that dielectric constant increases with cadmium content increasing while it decreases with decrease of cadmium content.
