We report an extensive study of cross section, phase shift and time delay for H–Kr@C60 elastic scattering. To demonstrate the effect of encapsulation, we extend this study to H–C60 elastic scattering also. Interaction potential is calculated using density functional theory for the scattering through both hexagonal and pentagonal rings of bare C60 and Kr@C60. The interaction potential for H–C60 is a double-humped barrier. In H–Kr@C60 case, this interaction has an additional huge core repulsive region near the center of C60, which is due to presence of the encapsulated atom. The scattering cross section exhibits glory oscillations and resonances, which are qualitatively different for the scattering through pentagonal and hexagonal rings of C60. The observed resonances arise due to combined effect of centrifugal and C60 potential barrier. We notice bunching of phase shifts for even–even and odd–odd ℓ partial waves in H–C60 scattering, consequently this happens in all measured scattering observables. The presence of the confined atom eliminates this phase bunching; therefore, H–Kr@C60 scattering rather gives wellorganized and sequential placement of resonances in order of ℓ values.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
