In this work we report CdS quantum dot sensitized solar cells which were assembled and tested under standard illumination condition. TiO2 nanoparticles of size 25 nm along with 4% of CdS QDs were taken for the preparation of CdS sensitized photo anode. The relatively high cost of solar technology has been a major impediment and production still exceeds the costs of generation by a significant margin. Hence attempts were made to replace Pt coated FTO counter electrode by alumina. We have also replaced the conventional hot-melt gasket by a glass adhesive. The characteristic current density Vs potential difference for CdS QDs sensitized solar cells was studied.

This paper presents a methodology for the detection of breast masses in mammogram images through shearlet transform and support vector machine (SVM). The proposed system focuses on two methods of how to segment the underlying masses in the noisy mammograms using shearlet transformation function and another is to classify the features that depict the masses in breast mammogram using SVM. The automatic mass detection includesthree stages (1) Image enhancement and contrast adjustment, (2) Segmentation (ROI) and (3) Classification (SVM classifier). The proposed approach is applied to MIAS mini image dataset and their findings depict the normal and severity of abnormal based on benign and malignant. The initial preprocessing stage includes the image enhancement using shearlet transform for de-noisingthroughshearlet filters to remove the white noise and contrast adjustment. These regions have their shapes analyzed through the shape descriptors. Support vector machines were used to classify the candidate regions as masses or non-masses. © Research India Publications.

Minerals of 15 rock sediments of Kollimalai Hills, Namakkal district, Tamil Nadu, South India, were determined using FTIR spectroscopy Crystallinity, extinction coefficient and relative distribution for different types of vegetation were analyzed owing to its importance and the suitability and those parameters were compared with those of many reported relevant data. The possible vegetation of each city is interpreted in light of qualitatively and quantitatively observed measurements of relevant parameters such as crystallinity index, relative distribution and extinction coefficients. © 2016, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Thalassemia (Thal), sickle cell anemia, and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) are the most common blood disorders in many parts of the world, particularly in developing countries like India and Bangladesh. The wellestablished diagnostic procedure for them is the complete blood count (CBC); however, there is substantial confusion in discrimination between Thal and IDA blood samples based on such CBC. We propose a new spectral technique for reliable classification between the above two anemias. This is based on the identification and quantification of a certain set of fluorescent metabolites found in the blood samples of patients of Thal and IDA. © The Authors.

Cadmium and magnesium co-doped zinc oxide (ZnO) thin films have been deposited on sapphire substrates using the sol–gel method and the spin coating technique. X-ray diffraction studies confirmed that the deposited films exhibit a hexagonal wurtzite ZnO structure. A strong ultraviolet near-band-edge emission and a deep level emission were observed in the room temperature photoluminescence (PL) spectra of all the films. The PL spectra were also investigated as a function of temperature to examine the emission mechanism of the deposited films. The ability to vary the band gap energy from 3.1 to 3.6 eV was realised by adjusting the cadmium and magnesium concentration in the co-doped ZnO films. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy studies revealed the successful incorporation of cadmium and magnesium in the ZnO films. © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.
