A simple and efficient one pot synthesis of 2-amino-4H-chromen-4-yl phosphonate derivatives has been accomplished by the condensation of salicylaldehyde, malononitrile/ethylcyanoacetate and triethyl phosphite/trimethyl phosphite in the presence of molecular iodine as catalyst in water at room temperature. All the reactions were very clean and the products(More)
We adopt the Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition (EEMD) method, with an appropriate thresholding on the Intrinsic Mode Functions (IMFs), to denoise the magnetocardiography (MCG) signal. To this end, we discuss the two associated problems that relate to: (i) the amplitude of noise added to the observed signal in the EEMD method with a view to prevent mode(More)
Following the recent theoretical prediction of superconductivity in hole doped LiBC by Rosner et al [1], we have attempted to synthesise Li deficient Li x BC (x = 1, 0.8, 0.6 and 0.4) and look for superconductivity in this system. Our synthesis procedure, following the recipe for MgB 2 , involves reaction of elemental components in a Ta crucible at 900 o C(More)
We present the design, fabrication, integration, testing, and calibration of a high field superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometer. The system is based on dc SQUID sensor with flux locked loop readout electronics. The design is modular and all the subsystems have been fabricated in the form of separate modules in order to simplify(More)
A series of new diethyl(alkyl/aryl/heteroarylamino)(4-(pyridine-2-yl)phenyl)methylphosphonates (4a-t) were synthesized via three-component Kabachnik-Field's reaction of 4-(pyridin-2-yl)benzaldehyde, diethylphosphite and various primary amines, catalyzed by cupric acetate monohydrate [Cu(OAc)(2) ∙ H(2)O] under solvent-free and microwave irradiation(More)
We present the results of synchrotron X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements on powdered single-crystal samples of BaFe(2-x)Ru(x)As2, as a function of Ru content, and as a function of temperature, across the spin-density wave transition in BaFe(1.9)Ru(0.1)As2. The Rietveld refinements reveal that with Ru substitution, while the a-axis increases, the c-axis(More)
Low temperature infrared absorption measurements have been carried out on nanocrystalline La0.67Ca0.33MnO3 powder across the magnetic and the insulator-to-metal phase transitions. Interesting changes are observed in the temperature dependence of the mid-IR polaronic background and the stretching mode of the MnO, octahedron. Upon cooling below 250 K, the(More)
Amorphous to crystalline transition in pressure quenched Zr(0.5)Hf(0.5)W(2)O(8) has been studied with respect to local structures of ZrO(6) using the perturbed angular correlation technique. In an untreated crystalline sample close to 0.7 fraction of the probe atoms occupy Zr sites of regular ZrO(6) while the remaining three fractions are understood to be(More)
Oxide dispersion strengthened ferritic steels (ODS) are being considered for structural components of future designs of fission and fusion reactors because of their impressive high-temperature mechanical properties and resistance to radiation damage, both of which arise from the nanoscale oxide particles they contain. Because of the critical importance of(More)
