Retailing in India has witnessed a sea change, not only in terms of emergence of newer formats, but also in terms of the behaviour of the shoppers. Indian shoppers who had limited choices till a decade back are now exposed to a plethora of choices, which indicates a radical shift from a conservative mind set to a spending mind set. The present research study aims to understand and analyze the ever changing consumer behavioural patterns while shopping. The study involves comparing how the consumer characteristics vary while shopping food and grocery items and apparel in four state capitals of West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, and Jharkhand. The study covers a sample base spread across the four cities of Kolkata, Ranchi, Patna, and Bhubaneswar. Primary research forms the basis of this study. The data analysis as detailed in the research study turned up some predictable as well as surprising results. The paper concludes that for food and grocery purchase, location (nearness to home) was the prime consideration for the respondents of Kolkata and Bhubaneswar, while it was range for both - respondents from Patna and Ranchi. Ambience was the least important parameter for the respondent populations from the 4 state capitals. For apparel purchase, range or assortment was the most important parameter for the respondent populations from the 4 state capitals. The behavioural pattern of the respondents with respect to frequency of visit, preferred group size during shopping, and decision maker in choosing a shopping destination revealed a fairly uniform pattern across the state capital locations.

Simultaneous utilization of both in-plane and out-of-plane phonon vibration of graphene sandwiched between a Au nanoparticle (NP) and Au TF junction can have a significant role in quantifying the z-polarized electromagnetic (EM) field contribution. The layer breathing mode (LBM), which involves the relative displacement of the individual graphene layers in the graphene sheet in the normal directions, can be exclusively observed at Au NP-Au TF junctions. By employing the ILBM/I2D value at each junction, the author can show that a nearly 50-70-times stronger z-polarized EM contribution is present at Au NP-Au TF junctions. Additionally, the author can also determine that a Au NP with a truncated shape shows a relatively ∼1.3-times higher z-polarized EM contribution than a Au NP with a spherical shape because of the higher density of the pointed part from the truncated Au NP. Furthermore, the author reveals the evolution of the asymmetric shape of the LBM peak with increasing z-polarized EM strength. The increase of the full width at half-maximum (fwhm) from the major LBM and the correlated blue shift of the minor LBM with increasing z-polarized EM contribution imply that the degree of coupling between highly localized electrons and low-energy phonons from graphene along the z axis might be reflected and that of the additional n-doped status of graphene stemming from the relatively higher electron density at truncated sites within Au NP might also be reflected. The author is currently developing this surface-enhanced-Raman-scattering-(SERS-) based nanometrology as a more facile optical characterization tool, especially for exploring out-of-plane phonon vibration of various 2D materials. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

A new carbazole derivative with two carbazole moieties on the C3 and C6 positions of carbazole and triphenylsilane directly linked to the N of carbazole is successfully used as a highly efficient blue phosphorescent host in an organic light-emitting diode (PhOLED). The blue PhOLED, with this new host, gives an extremely high external quantum efficiency. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Source
