|Abstract||Molybdenum dichalcogenides are semiconductors, which can act as e$cient electrodes in the realization of photoelectrochemical solar cells. Among molybdenum dichalcogenides (MoS2, MoSe2 and MoTe2), MoSe2 has led to the best solid state cells with e$ciencies exceeding 6%. The main advantage of these MoSe2 semiconductor is the prevention of electrolyte corrosion, because of the phototransitions involving non-bonding d}d orbital of the Mo atoms. MoSe2 thin "lms have been electrodeposited cathodically on tin oxide (SnO2)-coated conducting glass substrates from an ammonaical solution of H2MoO4 and SeO2 under potentiostatic condition. The electrode potential was "xed at!0.9 SCE and the pH was maintained at 9.3$0.1. The bath temperature was maintained at 403C. X-ray di!raction analysis showed the presence of highly textured MoSe 2 "lms with polycrystalline nature. The optical absorption spectra show that the material has an indirect band-gap value of 1.17 eV. Atomic force microscope (AFM) study was used to and the surface roughness of the "lm and surface morphology studies by scanning electron microscope (SEM) show that the "lms are smooth, uniform and pin-hole-free useful for device fabrication.|

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 9 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.
