CHICAGO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--AKHAN, a technology company specializing in the fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronics-grade diamonds, announced today the issuance by the Taiwan Patent Office, of a patent that covers a method for the fabrication of diamond semiconductor materials, ubiquitous in application for automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, military, defense, and telecommunications systems, amongst others.
“This patent originates from a filing in 2012, and is a testament to our leadership in the diamond semiconductor space.”
This patent (I557776) is a foreign counterpart of other issued and pending patents (including US Patent Application #61/513,569) owned by AKHAN Semiconductor, Inc. that are used in the company’s Miraj Diamond™ Platform products. As a key landmark patent, the claims protect uses far beyond the existing applications, including microprocessor applications. Covering the base materials common to nearly all semiconductor components, the intellectual property can be realized in everything from diodes, transistors, and power inverters, to fully functioning diamond chips such as integrated circuitry.
“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this key patent in the field of diamond based semiconductor. We believe that the claims in this patent will play an important role in incorporating diamond semiconductor materials in today and the next generation of electronics systems,” said Adam Khan, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, AKHAN Semiconductor, Inc. “This patent originates from a filing in 2012, and is a testament to our leadership in the diamond semiconductor space.”
AKHAN’s flagship Miraj Diamond™ Glass for mobile display and camera lens is 6x stronger, 10x harder, and runs over 800x cooler than leading glass competitors like Gorilla Glass by coating standard commercial glass such as aluminosilicate, BK7, and Fused Silica with lab-grown nanocrystalline diamond. Diamond-based technology is capable of increasing power density as well as creating faster, lighter, and simpler devices for consumer use. Cheaper and thinner than its silicon counterparts, diamond-based electronics could become the industry standard for keeping devices cool due to better internal heat conduction and more battery life.
This patent adds to the list of other key patents in the field of Diamond Semiconductor that are owned by the company, including the ability to fabricate transparent electronics, as well as the ability to form reliable metal contacts to diamond semiconductor systems.
