The objective of this study was to examine the association of prenatal multivitamin/mineral supplement use during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy by low income, urban women in the Camden Study (1985-1995, n = 1,430) and preterm delivery (< 37 completed weeks) and infant low birth weight (< 2,500 g). Prenatal supplement use was corroborated by(More)

Thin films of TiN were prepared via RF magnetron reactive sputtering at various deposition pressures. The characteristics of the plasmas were measured by optical emission spectroscopy to optimize the conditions for the deposition of TiN coatings. After deposition, the thin films were annealed in a closed furnace at several different temperatures, and(More)
