Deepak Kumar and L. K. Mishra

  • Abstract

    Using theoretical formalism of M. L. Kulic etal (Physica C (1995)) and T. Ishiguo etal.(J. Supercond. (1994)) we have theoretically analyzed the high frequency magneto electrodynamics behavior of low Tc superconductor DyNi2B2C in thesuperconducting and antiferromagnetic state over wide range of temperature T andmagnetic field H. We have analyzed the T dependence of surface impedance ZS andpenetration depth λ. The establishment of antiferromagnetic order at TN =10.3K result ina marked decrease in the scattering of charge carriers which lead to sharp decrease ofsurface resistance RS and surface reactance XS. Our theoretically analyzed results are in good agreement with the experimental data.

Rajkishor Prasad and L. K. Mishra

  • Abstract

    In this paper, we have evaluated the real part of the self-energy of a moving charge near a metal insulator interface like Al – LiF, Al-KCl and Al-NaCl. We have taken the polarization interaction due to plasmons, optical phonon and excitons. Our result indicates that the real part of self-energy as a function of Z-decreases for Z< 0 and increases for Z > 0. On insulator surface a strong space dependence of the electronic contribution to self-energy of charge has been noticed. This work will help to study the coupling of the electron to the localized electronic excitations in the insulator.

Study of effect of ethyl alcohol on electrodeposition of Zinc

Yusuf H. Shaikh, Gazala Shaikh, Pathan J.M., Gulam Rabbani

  • Abstract

    Effect of addition of Ethyl Alcohol on denritic Electrodeposition of Zinc is studied using circular cell geometry. Electrodeposition of Zinc commences at relatively lower cell voltages and the deposits are strongly influence by the presence or organic additives like Ethyl Alcohol and effect is concentration dependent. It is observed that the dendritic growth of electrodeposits is retarded with the addition of ETOH and branches of pattern tend to be thinner and weaker with increase in concentration of ETOH. This results in less crowded branches and the resulting deposits are very fragile with porous structure of the branches. As the dendritic patterns have fewer and thinner branches the fractal dimension are on the lower side. Higher concentration of ETOH result in very thin and fragile branches exhibiting very low fractal dimension. Findings and experimental details are presented.

Self-similarity and Fractal Character in Leaves

 Zakde K. R, Munde S.V, Yusuf H.Shaikh

  • Abstract

    Characterization of irregular shapes is assuming importance because of it applications in areas where conventional approaches have limited or no role. Many naturally occurring objects exhibit self-similarity and scale invariance over certain range of length scale and thus are fractals, however mathematically generated patterns show this character over entire range of length scale. Leafs from most of the trees possess self-similarity and scale invariance over appreciable range of length scale and have fractal character. In the present paper leaves from selected plants are studied from the point of view of fractal character using box-counting technique. The fractal dimension is found from log (N) versus log(r) plot where N is the number of boxes of size ‘r’ required to completely cover the image.  It is found that in most of the cases self-similarity and scale invariance prevails up to four orders of magnitude of length scale confirming fr

Microcontroller Based Data Acquisition System

Surekha V. Munde, Kapsae S.K., Gulam Rabbani3, Shaikh Yusuf H,

  • Abstract

    Design and construction of flexible low cost user friendly data acquisition system (DAS) based on 8051 family microcontroller (89S51/52) is presented. General purpose 8 bit ADC 0809 with 8 analogue inputs is used and thus the resolution is 1 part in 256 which suits most of the experiments, the clock is derived from a simple NE555 circuit. With suitable modifications, more than one channel from the ADC can be used. Basically the DAS is designed for 5V DC input for full scale reading. The DAS works with standard printer port of a PC in SPP mode and thus has downward compatibility.The data acquisition system works under program control and keeps on monitoring the signal at the analogue inputs and makes the digital equivalent available. The data transferred between microcontrollers based DAS and PC is in nibble (4 bit) mode and necessary multiplexing is suitably implemented. PC reads this digital input at pre-decided time intervals through controlling progra

A theoretical study of microwave electrodynamics of Low TC and high TC systems with coexisting superconductivity and magnetism

Deepak Kumar and L. K. Mishra

  • Abstract

    Using theoretical formalism of L. V. Mercalde etal. (Phys. Rev B59 (1999), we have theoretically studied the microwave electrodynamics of low TC and high TC systems with coexisting superconductivity and magnetism. We observed that in the case of Nb/CuMn (superconducting/spin glass) bilayers and on GdBa2Cu3O7-δ (TC=92.5K)(GBCO) thin film there is a coexistence of superconductivity and long range ordered antiferromagnetism below TN=2.5K. We have evaluated microwave surface impedance at three microwave frequencies on GBCO. Our theoretical results show an unusal low temperature behavior of both resistance and reactance on GBCO. This is due to change in magnetic permeability. Our theoretical results are in good agreement with the experimental data and also with other theoretical workers.

B. Al Shafaay

  • Abstract

    Total-energy calculations of CdS compound using first principle full potential-linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) plus local orbital method within the density functional theory (DFT). The structural properties at equilibrium are investigated by using the new form of generalized gradient approximations (GGA_PBEsol) that are based on the optimization of total energy. For band structure calculations, both GGA and modified Becke-Johnson (mBJ) of the exchange-correlation energy and potential, respectively, are used.The lattice parameter and mechanical properties of CdS have been determined and we found the energy gap equal 2.66eV.Besides this, a numerical first-principles calculation of the elastic constants was used to calculate C11, C12 and C44. We also presented the thermal effects on some macroscopic properties of this compound using the quasi-harmonic Debye model, in which the lattice vibrations are taken into acco

Manjeet Kr. Singh & Lalit Kr. Mishra

  • Abstract

    In this paper using extended Drude model, we have evaluated frequency dependent scattering rate and effective mass of electron for two high Tcsuperconductors at different temperatures. Our theoretically evaluated result for scattering rate is large and effective mass is small in comparison with the experimental data for the given temperatures. However, the trend for both the scattering rate and effective mass are in agreement with the experimental data and also with other theoretical workers.

U.S. Negi

  • Abstract

    Ishihara has studied holomorphically projective changes and their groups in a almost complex manifold and also proved on holomorphic planes. Obata has defined and studied Riemannian manifolds admitting a solution of a certain system of differential equations. Also, Negi and Gairola3,4 have explain an admitting a conformal transformation group on Kaehlerian recurrent spaces. In this paper, I have defined and studied an admitting H-projective vector field in Kaehlerian spaces with constant scalar curvature and several theorems have been proved. Also, then find necessary and sufficient conditions for such a Kaehlerian space to be isometric to a complex projective space with Fubini-Study metric.

A theoretical study of one-dimensional Bose-Fermi mixtures and evaluation of its super fluid response and momentum distribution functions

P. K. Verma and L. K. Mishra

  • Abstract

    In this paper, we have theoretically studied one-dimensional Bose-Fermi mixtures using the theoretical formalism of A. Zujev etal (Phys. RevA, 2008). We have evaluated super fluid Bose and Fermi density as a function of Bose-Bose interaction UBB and Bose- Fermi interaction UBF. Our theoretical results show that both ρB s and ρF s decreases with UBB and UBF which are in good agreement with the other theoretical workers. We have also determined momentum distribution for bosons nB(k), fermion distribution nF(k) and anti-correlated pairing momentum na(k) all as a function of wave vector k, keeping UBB, UBF, temperature β constant and varying boson occupation NB from 20 to 36. Our theoretical results indicate that for lower values of NB, nB(k) attains a peak at k=0 where as nF(k) has plateau at k=0. na(k) shows that composite fermions has been formed by pairing a boson and fermion. For large values of NB, Bose- Fermi mixtures show Mott-insulator

A Study of Continuum theory of Tkachenko modes in rotating Bose-Einstein Condensate

Anant Kumar, and L. K. Mishra

  • Abstract

    Tkachenko mode is a transverse sound wave in a vortex lattice, which exists in the ground state of a rotating super fluid. It has attractive a lot of attention in vortex dynamics of laboratory and astrophysical super fluids. Observation of this extremely soft mode (of order or less than a few Hz) in laboratory super fluids was very difficult because even slight pinning of vortex ends the Tkachenko wave into a classical inertial wave. This mode is a direct manifestation of the quantum vortices since it depends on the circulation quantum. Tkachenko mode in rotating BEC was investigated numerically with solving the equations of Gross-Pitaevskii theory. But the numerical results do not agree with the experiment.In the present paper, we have shown that the continuum theory of Tkachenko modes, taking into account density, inhomogenity and compressibility of the condensate successfully explained the observed experimental data.
