AKHAN joins US Council on Competitiveness

AKHAN Semiconductor Inc of Gurnee, IL, USA, which manufactures nanocrystalline (NCD)-based materials & devices, has joined the US Council on Competitiveness, a nonpartisan, leadership organization.

AKHAN Semiconductor Inc was formed in late 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. The firm's IP portfolio combines AKHAN's Miraj Diamond portfolio with low-temperature diamond deposition technology developed by Argonne National Laboratory's Center for Nanoscale Materials.

"The Council prides itself on its innovative membership, and AKHAN embodies the type of forward-looking, advanced companies that will keep the US competing at the highest level in the coming decades," comments Council president & CEO Deborah L. Wince-Smith.

Founder & CEO Adam Khan joins more than 140 industry CEOs, university presidents, national lab directors and labor leaders on the Council, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this winter. The group identifies policy solutions and creates public-private partnerships between its members and the federal government in order to ensure US prosperity in the global economy.

"Having pledged to increase the US economic competitiveness in the global marketplace through our leadership and growth in the diamond semiconductor market, AKHAN's work and goals are well aligned with the broader mission of the Council," says Khan.
