Two New Patents Published by the US Patent Office
October 22, 2014
Zecotek Announces Two New Patent Publications Covering Advanced LFS Crystal Formulations and Silicon Photo-Detectors
Singapore, October 22, 2014 - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX-V: ZMS; Frankfurt: W1I.F), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for industrial, healthcare and scientific markets, today announced today announced the recent publication by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) of two new strategic patents covering more advanced variants of its flagship lutetium-based LFS scintillation crystals and solid-state MAPD photo-detector arrays. The compositions and variants of Zecotek’s existing LFS crystals, are used as single elements, arrays and plates for a wide spectrum of applications.
“Our scientists have developed more advanced LFS crystal formulations to support the Integrated Detector Modules for new configurations of PET scanner designs. The modules are configured by our partner Hamamatsu,” said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. “Our latest LFS crystal variants have tunable emission maxima for optimal coupling with our upgraded version of MAPD photo-detectors to be used in Time Of Flight PET scanners and High Energy Physics at CERN.”
Dr. Zerrouk further added, “protecting our intellectual property is of utmost importance – and these two new patent filings further strengthen our IP position on these pioneering technologies and provide more advantageous, secure and cost effective alternatives for a substantial and fast growing market.”
