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.
The H minus ions prevalent in the sub-photospheric level are found to have minimum opacity at around 1.63 µm which makes this wavelength suitable for sub-photospheric observations . Some previous observations by Foukal et al ,, Wang et al  and so on in that ...
We analyse the light curve in the R band of the blazar OJ287, gathered during the 2015/2016 observing season. We did a search for quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) using several methods over a wide range of timescales. No statistically significant periods were found in...
We present optical spectrophotometric and near-infrared (NIR) photometric observations of the nova V2676 Oph covering the period from 2012 March 29 through 2015 May 8. The optical spectra and photometry of the nova have been taken from SMARTS and Asiago; the NIR photometry was ...
The upcoming large astronomical telescopes are trending towards the Segmented Mirror Telescope (SMT) technology, initially developed at the W M Keck Observatory in Hawaii, where two largest SMTs in the world are in use. SMT uses large number of smaller hexagonal mirror segments ali...
We have developed a low-cost off-the-shelf component star sensor (StarSense) for use in minisatellites and CubeSats to determine the attitude of a satellite in orbit. StarSense is an imaging camera with a limiting magnitude of 6.5, which extracts information from star patterns it r...
