GURNEE -- Akhan Semiconductor has been issued a patent by the Taiwan Intellectual Property Office, which covers Akhan's next-generation N-type diamond semiconductor system and diamond-based multilayered antireflective coating systems.

The patent is a key addition to the company's Miraj Diamond intellectual property portfolio. It's the company's third Taiwan-issued patent, and the fifth foreign counterpart that's been issued.

The technology enables new performance in semiconductor devices, as well as new capabilities in optical sensing, detecting, and transmission. It is a key component in military and aerospace sensor and detector applications, among other use cases.

"Taiwan is a world leader in semiconductor fabrication, and the Taiwanese patent will allow Akhan to work with the industries best, while still protecting our revolutionary diamond technology," said Adam Khan, founder and CEO of AKHAN Semiconductor. "The Taiwan patent will be crucial in establishing key partnerships that will help advance our technology."
