AKHAN opens new manufacturing facility

AKHAN Semiconductor Inc of Chicago, IL, USA has begun operations at a new manufacturing facility in Gurnee, Lake County, IL, which has been opened to expand its diamond semiconductor production. AKHAN also plans to create and expand community partnerships with the College of Lake County and Argonne National Laboratory.

AKHAN Semiconductor Inc was formed in 2012 as a subsidiary of AKHAN Technologies Inc, which was founded in 2007 by Adam Khan to commercialize Diamond Lattice Technology for diamond-based semiconductor devices.

"AKHAN SEMI represents a great step forward for our district, both in scientific advancement and economic development," said congressman Randy Hultgren (the US Representative for Illinois' 14th congressional district). "Their work is a prime example of the power and promise of taking the impressive discoveries that are being made at Argonne and other national labs and bringing them to the marketplace," he adds. "The Incubator partnership with the College of Lake County to develop hands-on training for students pursuing tech careers is just one of the many incredible programs which AKHAN SEMI brings to the 14th."

It is reckoned that AKHAN SEMI's work with diamond-based electronics and manufacturing will help to develop new industry standards and new commercial ventures.

Starting this month, AKHAN SEMI is also beginning the process of commercializing its research and patents as part of its partnership with Argonne. The partnership has also led to the development of a vocational training program, which provides education and the necessary skills for individuals to begin work in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.
