AKHAN Semi Obtains Key Patent for Diamond Semiconductor Materials in Korea

September 20, 2019 Alix Paultre

AKHAN Semiconductor announced the issuance of a patent by the Korean Intellectual Property Office, covering a method for the fabrication of diamond semiconductor materials. Originally filed in 2014, the Korea-issued patent 10-2007051 is the fourth foreign counterpart of other issued and pending patents owned by AKHAN (including U.S. Patent Application #61/513,569) related to the company’s Miraj Diamond Platform products. With other patents awarded in 2017 and 2018 in Japan and Taiwan, this is the first patent for the Korean market and will cover Korean-based semiconductor electronics.

Covering the base materials common to nearly all semiconductor components, the intellectual property can be utilized in everything from diodes, transistors and power inverters, to fully functioning diamond chips in integrated circuitry. AKHAN’s Miraj Diamond Glass for mobile displays and camera lenses is 6x stronger, 10x harder and runs over 800x cooler than leading glass suppliers by coating standard commercial glass such as aluminosilicate, BK7 and Fused Silica with lab-grown nanocrystalline diamond (NCD).
