HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AKHAN Technologies, Inc., the leader in advanced diamond electron device design, today announced the presentation of data relating to the characterization of its Miraj Diamond™ materials and in-part, from its recent collaborative work with the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory at the 21st annual International Materials Research Congress (IMRC 2012), August 12th- 17th 2012 at the JW Marriot Resort in Cancun, Mexico. The presented characterization analysis shows both the crystalline characterization and electrical characterization for AKHAN's n-type Nanocrystalline Diamond (NCD) films and PIN diode devices. The data presented includes a molecular level first glance of the newly characterized crystal structure, the outstanding crystal quality of the films, as well as breakthrough electrical performance of the fabricated AKHAN materials and devices.
"We are happy to report the new Miraj Diamond™ characterization data from our recent collaboration with the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne," said AKHAN president Adam Khan. "The data obtained can only be described as breakthrough. Furthermore, we are elated to present this data for the first time to the international materials science community as the results significantly advance the state of the art," continued Khan. In the presentation AKHAN demonstrates the effectiveness of their process demonstrating thin nanocrystalline diamond materials electrically outperforming microns thick single crystal diamond.
