|Abstract||Presently, CR-39 Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors (SSNTD) is beingused for Fast Neutron Personnel Monitoring in India. Individual detectors are cutmanually from CR-39 sheets. Laser-cutting of the sheets will ensure precision andalso save on the laborious efforts involved in sheet cutting. It was observed thatthere is a slight increase in background tracks due to laser-cutting. Studies werecarried out on the effect of chemical pre-etching at higher temperatures inproperties of CR-39 such as the background, sensitivity and minimum measurable dose.For this purpose a pre-etch step was included in the normal processing of the CR-39foils in an elevated temperature electrochemical cell (ETECE cell) and the durationfor pre-etch step at elevated temperature was optimized. Samples of CR-39 exposed to dose equivalents ranging from 1 mSv to 10 mSv usingAm-Be neutron source were processed by both the methods, under normal processingusing ECE cell and in the optimized chemical pre-etch followed by normal processing.The dose responses of CR-39 processed by both methods are compared in this paper.|

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.
