|Abstract||The triple fission, i.e., the fission of a nucleus into 2 heavy fragments and a long-range alpha particle, represents one of the several decay modes of the excited nucleus. Its probability differs from that of ordinary fission and therefore the dependence of the probability of this event on the neutron energy was determined in the 0.06- to 10-ev range by means of the time-of- flight method with a resolution of 3 mu sec/m on the linear accelerator of the I. V. Kurchatov Institute. A system consisting of 7 ionization chambers was used for recording the fission events. The results indicated thnt the dependence of the triple-fission probability on the energy varies, pointing to a correlation between the probability of the triple fission and the corresponding level widths of the ordinary fission. The experiments also revealed the fact that in addition to the triple fission, the (n, alpha )/sup 235/U reaction also emits alpha particles, as the result of neutron capture at levels possessing a relatively long life. This is in agreement with the available data on the emission of alpha particles by deformed nuclei (R. Nobles, Phys. Rev. 126: 1508 (1962)). (TTT)|
|Learning Resource Type||Article|
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.
