Pores of this carrier are impregnated with a medicine, or a capsule is formed from this carrier and the inner space of the carrier is filled with a medicine. In the resulting impregnated carrier or filled capsule, a desirable property of gradually releasing the medicine is obtained and a good durability of the effect of the medicine can be attained.
Abstract: This disclosure relates to an endosseous implant for use in dental and orthopedic treatment. The implant is a composite structure made of a combination of an outer ceramic member and an inner ceramic core member bonded together by glass cement. After being implanted, new bone tissue and new connective tissue penetrate into the outer member to form a net-like root structure therein, thereby increasing the stability of the implant and at the same time the outer member is reinforced by the inner core member.
Abstract: Disclosed is a synthetic single crystal for an alexandrite gem, which consists essentially of a synthetic chrysoberyl single crystal comprising aluminum oxide and beryllium oxide as the main components and chromium and vanadium as the coloring components, wherein vanadium is contained in an amount of about 0.00075 to about 2.95% by weight based on the crystal.This single crystal shows a green or bluish green color under natural light and the color is changed to red or reddish violet when the single crystal is exposed to tungsten light the single crystal of the present invention is comparable or superior to natural alexandrite produced in the Ural Mountain Region with respect to the hue and color change characteristics.
Abstract: A package for sealing an MOS type semiconductor element having a die-attach area comprising a first metal layer composed of gold and a second metal layer composed of a metal having a good bondability to aluminum metal, which is electrically connected to the first metal layer.
Abstract: An extrusion die for forming thin-walled honeycomb structures is provided comprising a plurality of discharge slots for forming unit cells of a predetermined web thickness formed transversely in the die to a predetermined depth in the outlet face and a plurality of mutually independent feed passageways formed transversely in the die extending from the inlet face of the die and communicating with the discharge slots. The cross-sectional area of the feed passageways is larger than the cross-sectional area of the discharge slots which are fed by the feed passageway, thereby applying sufficient flow resistance to the extrudable material and the discharge slot.
Abstract: This invention is directed to a burnt ceramics composition of matter for an endosseous implant to be inserted in the bone tissue of a living body. The composition of matter consists of 95-50% of Al.sub.2 O.sub.3 and 5-50% of more than one compound selected from the group consisting of ZrO.sub.2, La.sub.2 O.sub.3 and Y.sub.2 O.sub.3.
Abstract: A process for synthesizing single crystalline beryl out of a molten salt is disclosed. The process comprises the steps of providing at least one flux to which is added the component oxides of beryl and optionally a colorant. The mixture thus obtained is heated at a temperature higher than the melting point of the flux to thereby form a molten salt. After the formation of the molten salt, the salt is cooled below the temperature sphere of beryl formation and is thereafter reheatd and again melted. At this point beryl crystals are added to the molten salt which thereby form single crystalline beryl from the molten salt. By the use of the process of the present invention, superior quality single crystalline beryl is produced economically and at a high yield rate.
