It was observed that the co-substitution of La & Ti at Bi & Fe sites in BiFeO3 suppress the impurity phase formation which is a common ... More

Bell violation in the SkyJul 01 2016In this work, we have studied the possibility of setting up Bell's inequality violating experiment in the context of cosmology, based on the basic principles of quantum mechanics. First we start with the physical motivation of implementing the Bell's ... More

Prospects of inflation in delicate D-brane cosmologyJul 19 2007Oct 29 2007We study D-brane inflation in a warped conifold background that includes brane-position dependent corrections for the nonperturbative superpotential. Instead of stabilizing the volume modulus chi at instantaneous minima of the potential and studying the ... More
