Characterization and Performance Evaluation of Recrystallised Micro PETN

T. Mohan2, P.Vijayadarshan2, J.Venkata Viswanath1, Amarnath Gupta2, N.V. Srinivasarao2 and A. Venkataraman*1,3.

Introduction PETN is one of the high energy materials having oxidizer and fuel in the same molecule1. PETN is used as a secondary explosive. Using a different primary explosive to initiate the secondary has its limitations such as, problems in synthesizing high sensitive primary explosives, heterogeneity etc. PETN is considered to have medium sensitivity towards the impact and electric shock. ...

Physicochemical Analysis of Ground Water Samples of South Coastal Areas of Kanniyakumari in the Post-Tsunami Scenario 

Krishna Prakash Arunachalam1, Monikandon Sukumaran2*, Mohammad Tanveer3 and Kesavan Devarayan4*


Introduction Generally, groundwater is considered as an important drinking water source, especially in coastal regions due to limited availability of surface water. Kanniyakumari district is situated in the farthest south of Tamil Nadu, India. Even though abundant surface water is available in this district, the major population prefers to use ground water. For instance, almost every home situated in this ... Read More »

Analysis of AC-conductivity in chalcogenide Ge10Se20 Bi80Thin Film

Shiveom Srivastav


Introduction Chalcogenide materials have a great potential in phase-change random access memory (PRAM) devices are regarded to be a strongly promising candidate for the next generation nonvolatile memory (Doo Seok Jeong et al, 2011). These glasses are sensitive to the absorption of electromagnetic radiation and show a distinct photo induced effects. These properties show potential for numerous applications in active ...
