Welcome to the Digital Repository of Indian Institute of Astrophysics
This digital repository of Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIAP), Bangalore, India is developed to capture, organize disseminate and preserve the research publications of IIAP. It also includes the in-house technical reports and annual reports in addition to various other grey literatures created within the institute.You can search, browse and access full text of these publications from the repository.
This Repository also hosts papers published in Bulletin of the Astronomical Society of India, Volumes 1 to 33, 1973 to 2005. The contents of Vol. 34, 2006 to Current can be accessed from the BASI HOMEPAGE
Archival Collection in Open Access
Indian Institute of Astrophysics traces its origin back to 1786, and the Institute has naturally inherited the library and records of the Madras and Kodaikanal Observatories. This collection of archival records has grown over the years in various formats such as manuscripts, photographs, maps, films, awards, hand-drawn sketches, pictures and instruments.
Context. The HAGAR Telescope Array at Hanle, Ladakh has been regularly monitoring the nearby blazar Mkn 421 for the past seven years. Aims. Blazars show flux variability in all timescales across the electromagnetic spectrum. While there is abundant literature characterizing the s...
We present rare contemporaneous low-frequency (<100 MHz) imaging, spectral, and polarimetric observations of a moving type IV radio burst that had close spatio-temporal association with a white-light coronal mass ejection (CME) near the Sun. We estimate the electron density near the burst...
Due to the differential and non-simultaneous nature of polarization measurements, seeing induced crosstalk (SIC) and seeing limited spatial resolution can easily counterbalance the benefits of solar imaging polarimetry from the ground. The development of instrumental techniques to treat these issues...
Single aperture speckle interferometry (Labeyrie, 1970) is a method that deciphers diffraction limited spatial Fourier spectrum and image features of stellar objects by counteracting blurring effect caused by the atmospheric turbulence. Together with pupil-plane techniques, as well as hyb...
Context. Remote sensing of weak and small-scale solar magnetic fields is of utmost relevance when attempting to respond to a number of important open questions in solar physics. This requires the acquisition of spectropolarimetric data with high spatial resolution (~10-1 arcsec) and low...
