|Abstract||A wide variety of material modifications in polymers have been studied by using ion irradiationtechniques. Extensive research has focused on to Swift Heavy Ions (MeV's energy), probably because of goodcontrollability and the large penetration length in polymers. High energy ion irradiation tends to damage polymerssignificantly by electronic excitation and ionization. It may result into the creation of latent tracks and can alsocause formation of radicals such as ablation, sputtering, chain scission and intermolecular cross-linking, creationof triple bonds and unsaturated bonds and loss volatile fragments. Polypropylene polymer films of thickness 50μm were irradiated to the fluences of 1 × 1010, 3 × 1010, 1 × 1011, 3 × 1011, 6 × 1011 and 1 × 1012 ions/cm2 with Si8+ions of 100 MeV energy from Pelletron accelerator at Inter University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi andNe6+ ions of 145 MeV to the fluences of 108, 1010, 1011, 1012 and 1013 ions/cm3 from Variable Energy CyclotronCentre, Kolkata. Optical modifications were characterized by UV towards the red end of the spectrum with theincrease of the fluence. Value of optical band gap Eg shows a decreasing trend with ion fluence irradiated withboth kinds of ions. Cluster size N, the number of carbon atoms per conjugation length increases with increasingion dose. Cluster size also increases with the increase of electronic stopping power.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
