Trimethyl phosphate (TMP) and acetylene were codeposited in nitrogen and argon matrices and adducts of these species were identified using infrared spectroscopy. Formation of the adducts was evidenced by shifts in the vibrational frequencies of the modes involving the TMP and acetylene submolecules. The structures of these adducts, energies and the(More)
Effect of nitrogen and argon matrices on the C-H asymmetric stretching and bending infrared frequencies of the acetylene molecule, C(2)H(2), has been studied by matrix isolation experiments as well as by calculations at MP2 level of theory. The complexes of C(2)H(2) in nitrogen and argon matrices, viz., C(2)H(2)(N(2))(m) (with m=2-8) and C(2)H(2)(Ar)(n)(More)
In this paper, we present a head pose estimation method for unconstrained images using feature-based manifold embedding. The main challenge of manifold embedding methods is to learn a similarity kernel that is reflective of variations only due to head pose and ignore other sources of variation. To address this challenge, we have used the feature(More)
Quenching corrections in fluorimetric estimations are arrived at using time resolved fluorometry, where the reduction in the lifetimes of the fluorophore in the presence of quenchers is a measure of the correction. A novel procedure for the correction of quenching in fluorimetric determinations using steady state fluorescence spectroscopy is described here.(More)
The 1:1 hydrogen-bonded complex of fluoroform and hydrogen chloride was studied using matrix-isolation infrared spectroscopy and ab initio computations. Using B3LYP and MP2 levels of theory with 6-311++G(d,p) and aug-cc-pVDZ basis sets, the structures of the complexes and their energies were computed. For the 1:1 CHF3-HCl complexes, ab initio computations(More)
The cotton plant, Gossypium hirsutum L. (cv. Lakshmi) exhibits circadian leaf movements. Fusaric acid (5-n butyl pyridine 2-carboxylic acid), an in vivo toxin shown to be produced during the pathogenesis of the wilt disease in cotton, causes phase shifts of the leaf movement rhythm that varied in degree and magnitude as a function of the treated phases. The(More)
Feature tracking algorithms have conventionally tracked ‘corner’ features or windows with high spatial frequency content. However, this conventional point feature representation of scenes would be inappropriate for poorly textured image sequences like indoor image sequences. To overcome this problem, we propose a feature tracking algorithm which tracks(More)
Rice seedlings maintained under uncontrolled glasshouse conditions were inoculated with conidial suspensions of a fungal pathogen, Helminthosporium oryzae, at various times during the 24h. Significant increase in the percent germination and germ tube length of conidia were observed in the rice samples inoculated at 02:00 and 06:00h. The 24 h temporal(More)
Conformations of trimethoxymethylsilane were studied using matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy and ab initio computations. Trimethoxymethylsilane was trapped in both argon and nitrogen matrixes using heated nozzle effusive sources and a supersonic jet source, in an effort to alter the conformational population in the matrix. Ab initio calculations were(More)
