|Abstract||Using thin-target recoil techniques, the average ranges and range straggling were measured, in aluminum, of 72min Sm/sup 142/ produced in heavy- ion induced nuclear reactions. Eight different combinations of target and beam projectile were studied, five leading to Eu compound systems and three leading to Gd compound systems. In all cases the recoil-range distributions could be fitted by Gaussian functions. Comparison of the average ranges with a rangeenergy curve for Sm/sup 142/ in Al provides evidence for a compound-nucleus mechanism in these reactions. The straggling parameters observed in reactions leading to Eu compound systems are in good agreement with those obtained for (HI, xn) reactions. In reactions leading to Gd compound systems, the straggling parameters are found to be anomalously large. It is suggested that these effects are due to alpha- particle emission from highly excited Gd compound nuclei, and an attempt is made to infer the kinematics associated with this process. The results of a relatively simple analysis of the straggling-parameter data show that the average kinetic energies of the emitted alpha particles are reasonable, but somewhat different for the several reactions investigated.

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built 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 designed 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 developed, operated and maintained from 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 Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
