Enough time was given for the emulsifier to mix thoroughly in the external phase. Then, a desired volume of the dispersed phase was slowly added to the continuous (external) phase.
The resulting multiple gel-in-oil-in-water (GOW) emulsions were more stable than the WOW emulsions to the addition of up to 1% salt to the external phase. Also, the presence of xanthan gum in the external phase further improved the stability of the emulsions to the addition of salt.
The topics include analogue performance metrics, sources of noise in fiber optic links, propagation effects, external intensity modulation with direct detection, external phase modulation with interferometric detection, other analog optical modulation methods, and high current photodetectors.
External phase compensation circuit is not necessary, as it is a constant on-time control DC/DC converter with high speed response.
Encapsulation efficiency was highly dependent (P value < 0.05) on the internal to external phase ratio, that is, volume ratio of the aqueous phase (external) to the intermediate phase (organic) (Table 1).
Some motors like a DC servo have only a single external phase while other motors like the step motor have two, three or five phases.
Upon emulsification of the polymer solution some of the dichloromethane was partitioned into the external phase. The partitioned solvent was evaporated from the surface and was replaced by a further partitioning of the solvent.
