AKHAN's Miraj Diamond® Technology Selected by Army for Air & Missile Defense and High Energy Laser Systems


Leading Diamond Technology Company Selected for Inaugural U.S.
Army Expeditionary Technology Search

AKHAN Semiconductor, a technology company specializing in the
fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronics-grade diamonds,
announced today that its Miraj Diamond® technology has been selected by
the U.S. Army to be part of the inaugural Army Expeditionary Technology
Search (xTechSearch).

The proposal, submitted by AKHAN, calls for the integration of its
proprietary diamond technology in current Air & Missile Defense and High
Energy Laser (HEL) systems thereby elevating component mechanical and
optical properties beyond the state of the art--in support of the
XTechSearch Air and Missile Defense technology focus area. "Integration
with our Miraj Diamond® technology will dramatically improve component
and system reliability and performance in extreme environments,
protecting against system failure issues that arise from overheating and
delamination while simultaneously maintaining the stringent performance
demands incumbent upon these systems," explains AKHAN Founder & CEO,
Adam Khan.

"AKHAN has demonstrated a deep expertise in developing innovative
diamond-based solutions for optical technologies. Our Miraj Diamond®
Glass products include consumer-facing applications, such as our
smartphone display glass--as well as aerospace and defense applications,
such as optical windows, mirrors, and lenses," said AKHAN President &
COO Carl Shurboff. "We look forward to announcing new capabilities for
the platform in the near future."

AKHAN's flagship Miraj Diamond® Glass for consumer display is 6x
stronger, 10x harder, and runs over 800x cooler than leading glass
competitors like Gorilla Glass by coating standard commercial glass such
as aluminosilicate, BK7, and Fused Silica with lab-grown nanocrystalline
diamond. Diamond-based technology is capable of increasing power density
as well as creating faster, lighter, and simpler devices for consumer
