AKHAN and Blue Wave partner to develop nanocrystalline diamond processes on HFCVD systems

AKHAN Semiconductor Inc of Gurnee, IL, USA, which specializes in the fabrication and application of nanocrystalline (NCD)-based materials & devices for semiconductor and electronic applications, has announced a partnership with Blue Wave Semiconductors Inc of Baltimore, MD, USA (which provides processing tools and thin-film technology components and materials to R&D customers, Federal Government, and industrial partners) that is reckoned to constitute a key step forward for the R&D of both companies, allowing both to expand the functionality and applications of their products and processes.

Blue Wave produces hot-filament chemical vapor deposition (HFCVD) equipment, representing an important differentiator as AKHAN is now preparing to fabricate its Miraj diamond material from both microwave and hot-filament systems for a variety of thin-film substrates such as silicon, silicon carbide (SiC), and glass.

AKHAN is partnering with Blue Wave for nanocrystalline diamond process development on HFCVD systems. The partnership should allow AKHAN to optimize its diamond technologies for a variety of optical, mechanical & thermal/electronic product lines and is intended to also facilitate rapid and efficient commercial scaling.

"This partnership will greatly enhance our operational and commercial diamond capability, where our customers can benefit from an optimized lab-to-fab deployment schedule, while maintaining compliance with rigid electronics manufacturing standards," says AKHAN's president & chief operating officer Carl Shurboff.

"This partnership strengthens our HFCVD product line for realizing diamond coatings applications to commercial opto-mechanical components," adds Blue Wave's CEO & CTO Dr R.D. Vispute.
