DMPQ-CNTs have unique thermal and mechanical properties that make them intriguing for the development of new materials. Discuss

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are cylindrical molecules that consist of rolled-up sheets of single-layer carbon atoms (graphene). They can be single-walled (SWCNT) with a diameter of less than 1 nanometer (nm) or multi-walled (MWCNT), consisting of several concentrically interlinked nanotubes, with diameters reaching more than 100 nm. Their length can reach several micrometers or even millimeters. … Read more

Under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, CDSCO is responsible for approval of New Drugs, Conduct of Clinical Trials, laying down the standards for Drugs, control … Read more

DMPQ- What do you understand by the term Zigzag Technology?

In zigzag kilns, bricks are arranged to allow hot air to travel in a zigzag path. The length of the zigzag air path is about three times that of a straight line, and this improves the heat transfer from the flue gases to the bricks, making the entire operation more efficient. In addition, better mixing … Read more

DMPQ- Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the study of molecules by recording the interaction of radiofrequency (Rf) electromagnetic radiations with the nuclei of molecules placed in a strong magnetic field. The technique is used in quality control and research for determining the content and purity of a sample as well as its molecular structure. The … Read more


It is the web enabled patient management system for TB control under the National Tuberculosis Elimination Programme (NTEP). It is developed and maintained by the Central TB Division (CTD), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, in collaboration with the National Informatics Centre (NIC), and the World Health Organization Country office for India. … Read more

DMPQ- Write a short note on Industrial Information System.

To optimize resource utilization and enhance the efficiency of the manufacturing sector, the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce & Industry launched the Industrial Information System (IIS) in 2017. It is a GIS-enabled database of industrial areas and clusters across the country. The portal serves as a one-stop solution to the … Read more

DMPQ- Differentiate between deep web and dark web.

The Deep Web (also known as the Undernet, invisible Web and hidden Web, among other monikers) consists of data that you won’t locate with a simple Google search. The deep web, invisible web, or hidden web are parts of the World Wide Web whose contents are not indexed by standard web search engines. The opposite … Read more

DMPQ- The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is planning the inaugural flight of its indigenously developed Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV). What is SSLV and How SSLV is different from PSLV?

The SSLV is being designed by Indian scientists to carry smaller commercial satellites into the low-earth orbit less than 2,000 km above the earth’s surface. The SSLV can launch dedicated payloads or multiple satellites into low earth orbit or sun-synchronous orbit. The payload will be 300 kg to sun synchronous orbit (SSO) and 500 kg … Read more

DMPQ- What is the difference between LIDAR and RADAR?

LIDAR is short for Light Detection And Ranging. It’s a more modern (but still pretty old) version of the tried and true radar which is short for Radio Detection And Ranging. Radar uses radio waves to detect objects and determine their range, angle, and/or velocity while lidar does basically the same thing, but with pulsed … Read more
