|Abstract||Measurements were made on the changes in the bleaching rate of the F band as the result of varying the intensity of F light. Bleaching was done on KCl crystals that were irradiated at room temperature with hard x rays into either the first or second stage of coloration. In the first stage irradiated crystals, the total bleaching of the F centers during the first ten seconds of illumination varied approximately linearly with light intensity at low intensities but became saturated at intensities greater than 5 x 10/sup 14/ photons/sec cm/sup 2/. The bleaching process was thought to occur primarily through the capture of photoelectrons at pre-existing electron traps. Based on this model it was possible to set up the kinetic equations for the bleaching process. Using reasonable values for photoelectron capture coefficients forced the conclusion that the number of photoelectrons war always very small throughout the bleaching process. The resulting simplification in the analysis of the kinetic equations led to a prediction of the experimentally observed variation of the initial bleaching rate with light intensity. The analysis showed that the ratio of the capture coefficient for photoelectrons of the electron trapping centers to that of negative-ion vacancies was about unity, which strongly suggested that the trapping centers were either traps with net positive charge or were neutral traps located close to the original F centers. The rate of bleaching during the second stage of bleaching saturated at the lowest intensity used, which was about 1 x 1O/sup 14/ photons/sec cm/sup 2/. This result is discussed in terms of the analysis given for the first stage of bleaching. (auth)|

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 several 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.
