|Abstract||Vapor-grown single crystals of nearly stoichiometric UO<sub>2</sub> have been thinned for transmission electron microscopy. The as-grown crystals show a dense pattern of precipitates and may contain loops due to quenched-in vacancies but contain hardly any dislocations. Two models for the production of loops are proposed. Dislocation networks (small angle boundaries) are produced on annealing the crystals. Irregular patterns of dislocations arise when sufficient thick parts of the crystal foils are treated with heat shocks in the microscope suddenly increasing the beam current. After exposure to 10<sub>15</sub> nvt the crystal foils show fission tracks, short segments of straight dislocation lines, and black dots, which are partly distributed at random and partly are aligned on fission tracks. Interaction between fission tracks and dislocations has been observed. The conditions for contrast production on fission tracks have been investigated. The experimental findings can be explained by a model of a displacement field around the fission tracks.|

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.
