|Abstract||The ratio of proton to neutron yields from aluminum and copper irradiated with betatron x rays up to 20.8 Mev in energy was measured. Simultaneous detection of protons and neutrons is accomplished by placing two samples of the same element in series in the x-ray beam. Direct detection methods are used in each case, a shallow proportional counter for protons and a boron-lined detector for neutrons. A photon difference methcd was used to reduce yield data to cross section form. The proton and neutron yields for aluminum are found to be approximately equal at 20 Mev with cross sections of 19 and 21 millibarns, respectively. At 20.8 Mev a yield ratio of one proton to abcut 6 neutrons is found for copper, with a peak photoproton cross section of 23 millibarns. The results are compared to a calculation based on the assumption that these reactions proceed through the formation of a compound nucleus. (auth)|

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.
