  • China Awards New Wave Research Patent for AccuScribe Technology
Apr 2007
New Wave Research Inc. of Fremont, Calif., a manufacturer of lasers and laser-based systems for the microelectronics and analytical instrumentation industries, announced that the People's Republic of China Patent Office awarded the company patent number ZL-03-1-42382.5. The patent, titled "Scribing Sapphire Substrates with a Solid State UV Laser," covers processes and technology associated with AccuScribe, the company's blue LED wafer-scribing product line. The patent became valid Nov. 29, 2006; the company currently holds multiple patents from China, Taiwan and the US. "This new patent attests to New Wave Research's seriousness in defending its intellectual property on an international level," said Pei Hsien Fang, company CEO. "In fact, we have prevailed in all litigation cases involving copycat technology -- spanning multiple countries and continents -- and continue to monitor our markets for potential patent infringements. We will vigorously pursue our legal rights against any company that does not respect our patents." Fang said the company welcomes inquiries about licensing agreements.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
The process of perforating a silicon or ceramic substrate with a series of tiny holes along which it will break. Nd:YAG or CO2 lasers are now routinely used.
A cross-sectional slice cut from an ingot of either single-crystal, fused, polycrystalline or amorphous material that has refined surfaces either lapped or polished. Wafers are used either as substrates for electronic device manufacturing or as optics. Typically, they are made of silicon, quartz, gallium arsenide or indium phosphide.
