CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#diamondage--AKHAN Semiconductor, a technology company specializing in the fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronic-grade diamonds, announced today that it has been issued a patent by the United States Patent Office (USPTO) generally related to systems and methods for transparent diamond electronics.
More particularly, issued patent, 10,760,157, AKHAN’s ninth US patent, addresses the Company’s system and method for providing thin film diamond coatings for transparent electronic component materials, like displays and lenses. The system and method allow for the fabrication of an improved glass component system, with respect to hardness, strength and hydrophobic design requirements.
“There are many characteristics that make diamond favorable for semiconductor performance, including better electronic display screens,” said Adam Khan, Founder and CEO of AKHAN Semiconductor. “This latest patent adds to the intellectual property portfolio safeguarding our innovations within AKHAN’s Miraj Diamond® Glass products, which can be applied to smartphone screens, automobile displays counsels and other electronics to make them ultra-hard, as well as scratch and water resistant. With the market interest, initial productization, and the quite public attempted infringement by the well-known Chinese Telecomm giant Huawei, the value of this patent and the portfolio is appreciably large.”
AKHAN’s Miraj Diamond® Glass utilizes lab grown, thin-film diamond specially tuned for optical application. The resultant structures show dramatic improvement to performance, reliability, and aesthetics, with third party testing verifying Miraj Diamond® Glass performance to be more than six times stronger, 10 harder and over 800 times cooler than leading flagship competitor glass.
