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.
To obtain even qualitatively correct results of potential energy surfaces (PESs) of the ground and two lowest-lying excited singlet states of C2 is a difficult task due to the strong geometry-dependent closeness of these PESs leading to real and avoided crossings. Our IVO-SSMRPT me...
A simple design of a soft x-ray polarimeter using multilayer mirrors is presented. A multilayer mirror acts as a linear polarization analyzer for x-rays at incidence angles close to the Brewster angle. The instrument consists of an x-ray concentrator, a set of multilayer mirrors...
Context. Long-term sunspot observations are key to understanding and predicting the solar activities and its effects on space weather. Consistent observations, which are crucial for long-term variations studies, are generally not available due to upgradation/modification of observatories over the ...
The Calcium K spectroheliograms of the Sun from Kodaikanal have a data span of about 100 years and covers over 9 solar cycles. The Ca line is a strong chromospheric line dominated by chromospheric network and plages which are good indicators of solar activity. Length-scales...
SDSS J082625.70+612515.10 (V = 11.4 [Fe/H] = ‑3.1) and SDSS J134144.60+474128.90 (V = 12.4 [Fe/H] = ‑3.2) were observed with the SDSS 2.5m telescope as part of the SDSS MARVELS spectroscopic pre-survey and identified as extremely metal-poor (EMP; [Fe/H] < ‑3.0) stars d...
