Co-ground powders of the poorly water-soluble drug nifedipine and a hydrophilic carrier, [partially hydrolyzed gelatin (PHG), polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), polyethylene glycol (PEG), urea or Pluronic F108] were prepared in order to improve the dissolution rate of nifedipine. The effects of(More)
The dissolution rate of the model drugs carbamazepine and nifedipine was improved by adsorbing solutions of the drugs in hydrophilic non-volatile or volatile solvents onto carriers with a large surface area. This was accomplished by dissolving the drug in methanol or the non-toxic hydrophilic liquids PEG 400 or 2-pyrrolidone, and adsorbing these solutions(More)
A planar Rowland spectrometer was fabricated and characterized as a wavelength demultiplexer for multimode fiber-optic applications. The spectrometer consisted of a planar multimode glass waveguide with two curved end faces and a cylindrical concave grating attached to one of the end faces. Semiconductor lasers with wavelengths between 0.825 and 0.845(More)
There are currently strong trends in military system design, particularly shipboard and airborne, toward microminiaturization, digital processing, and system level integration to achieve smaller size, weight, and power consumption along with lower cost and improved reliability. Since these trends naturally point to data bus multiplexing, it is of interest(More)
