|Abstract||The decay of K/sup 43/ was reinvestigated in an attempt to clarify the discrepancies existing in the ordering of the energy levels of Ca/sup 43/. The external conversion spectrum showed lines corresponding to the following gamma- ray energies: 0.220 plus or minus 0.002, 0.37l plus or minus 0.002, 0.388 plus or minus 0.002, 0.394 plus or minus 0.002, 0.591 plus or minus 0.003, and 0.6l4 plus or minus 0.004 Mev. In addition a gamma ray of l.005 Mev was observed in the scintillation spectrum. BETA - gamma coincindence measurements establish that the gamma transitions to the ground state are the 0.371-Mev and the 0.59l-Mev gamma rays and not the 0.614-Mev gamma as believed previously. These results and the nu - gamma coincidence measurements indicate only one possible level scheme in Ca/sup 43/: 0, 0.371, 0.591, 0.985, and l.373 Mev. These energy levels as well as their proposed spin and parity assignments are in gound agreement with the results from the Massachusetts institute of Technology nuclear reaction data. A twocycle baffle for the solenoid BETA spectrometer is described. This baffle reduces significantly the background due to scattered gamma radiation from very strong external conversion sources.

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.
