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. Swept Charge Devices (SCD) are novel X-ray detectors optimized for improved spectral performance without any demand for active cooling. The Chandrayaan-1 X-ray Spectrometer (C1XS) experiment onboard the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft used an array of SCDs to map the global surface elemental...
Context. Star forming early-type galaxies with blue optical colours at low redshift can be used to test our current understanding of galaxy formation and evolution. Aims. We want to reveal the fuel and triggering mechanism for star formation in these otherwise passively evolving...
A comparison between a coronal hole (CH) and the adjacent quiet Sun (QS) has been performed using the spectroscopic diagnostics of the Hinode/EUV Imaging Spectrometer (EIS). Based on spectral signatures, we identify the coronal funnels that play an important role in the formation...
Propagating disturbances are often observed in active region fan-like coronal loops. They were thought to be due to slow mode magnetohydrodynamic waves based on some of the observed properties. However, recent studies involving spectroscopy indicate that they could be due to high speed&...
Sunspots on the surface of the Sun are the observational signatures of intense manifestations of tightly packed magnetic field lines, with near-vertical field strengths exceeding 6,000 G in extreme cases1. It is well accepted that both the plasma density and the magnitude of the ma...
