CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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). The patent covers AKHAN’s new and improved system and method for fabricating monolithically integrated diamond semiconductors.
The issued patent, No. US 10,546,749 B2, is a key addition to AKHAN’s breakthrough Miraj Diamond® intellectual property portfolio. It is the Company’s seventh patent issued in the U.S. and is generally related to semiconductor fabrication methods, and more particularly to a method of fabricating diamond semiconductors. Diamond possess favorable theoretical semiconductor performance characteristics; however, practical diamond-based semiconductor device applications remain limited because of difficulties associated with fabricating quality n-type layers in diamond. AKHAN’s newest patent discloses a new and improved system and method for fabricating diamond semiconductors. It includes the steps of seeding the surface of a substrate material, forming a diamond layer upon the surface of the substrate material, and forming a semiconductor layer within the diamond layer, wherein the diamond semiconductor of the semiconductor layer has n-type donor atoms and a diamond lattice.
“Our newest patent is further validation that AKHAN Semiconductor is the world leader in fabricating lab-grown diamonds that significantly enhance the capabilities of technologies across all industries, from consumer electronics like the phone in your pocket, to the military and defense systems that protect our great nation,” said Adam Khan, Founder and CEO of AKHAN Semiconductor. “Through this new and improved system, we are able to more efficiently develop lab-grown diamond technology that performs exceptionally better than the market-leading materials commonly used today.”
AKHAN’s flagship Miraj Diamond® Technology is capable of increasing power density and creating faster, lighter and simpler electronic devices for consumer, industrial and defense use. Cheaper and thinner than its silicon counterparts, diamond-based materials are on their way to becoming the industry standard for energy-efficient electronics.
