|Abstract||CR-39 Solid State Nuclear Track Detecting foils (SSNTD), along with 1 mmthick polyethylene radiator, sealed in triple laminated pouches, are used forcountry wide Fast Neutron Personnel Monitoring in India. With the present system ofprocessing by elevated temperature electrochemical etching (ETECE) and evaluationusing automatic image analysis, only 16 foils are processed at a time and it isuseful over the dose equivalent range 0.2 mSv to 10 mSv. It has been reported that,by processing CR-39 of good detection efficiency by chemical etching at elevatedtemperature, more numbers of foils can be processed simultaneously. In the present study, CR-39 foils from Pershore Moulding (UK) have been chemicallyetched using 7 N KOH under various conditions of temperature and etching durationsand evaluated using high magnification microscope. The duration of chemical etching,has been optimized at a constant temperature of 60°C for chemical etching process.The characteristics of the chemically etched CR-39 foils are compared with thecharacteristics of the CR-39 foils processed by the existing system of ETECE and thedetailed results are presented in the full text of the paper. It has been observedthat by chemical etching process, the dose equivalent range of CR-39 foils can beextended above 60 mSv.|

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
