License Grant
Pursuant to the Assignment Agreement entered for Patent No. 5,254,237 which is entitled, Plasma Arc Apparatus for Producing Thin Film Diamond Coatings, was granted on October 19, 1993 to Licensor, the inventor of the original titanium nitride and thin film diamond coating processes.
License Property
The Diamond Coating Process includes, but is not necessarily limited to, low temperature titanium nitride, cobalt nitride, chromium nitride, ferroelectric coatings, piezoelectric coatings, diamond hard coatings and diamond semi-conductor substrates.  Thus there has been disclosed a unique plasma arc deposition system for producing diamond, doped diamond or diamond-like coatings on a substrate by pulsed plasma technique.  These techniques do not require or produce temperature rise at the substrate, allowing normally temperature sensitive substrates to be utilized.  Typical of substrates which bond readily to the thin film diamond coatings without degradation are zinc sulfide (ZnS) or zinc selenide (ZnSe), which are useful in infrared windows or laser components.  The system disclosed and described can be used in the development of products and materials such as producing on junction diodes of crystalline carbon, so that rectifiers able to withstand temperatures in the neighborhood of 1000 to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit are also possible. Insulated gate field effect transistors that can handle high source to drain potentials and provide high gain without seriously loading the signal source, while operating at elevated temperatures beyond those achievable with silicon devices, can be produced with the system described.  Many other diamond-like integrated circuit chips, such as light emitting diodes or diodes used in solid state lasers are possible. Since thick diamond layers of good optical clarity can be produced by the process described herein, among the new devices that have become possible is an optical modulator that depends upon the polarizing effects of electric fields upon light beams through the crystal lattice.  This property leads to the entirely new family of high-power, opto-electronic coupling, modulating, scanning and/or sensing devices based upon diamond semiconductors.  Many other semiconductor devices that can utilize the enhanced properties of diamond-like films can be produced with the invention disclosed and described herein.
Field of Use
The rights granted apply for producing diamond-like coatings.

The Intragene-TM- process is a proprietary methodology developed by metallurgists and materials scientists at the Company and has been granted six U.S. patents as well as national phase patents based on two European patent applications and three Japanese patents. The Intragene-TM- process facilitates the ability to metallize, solder or braze a wide range of engineering ceramics, graphite and refractory metals.

The materials division product line consists of Intragene-TM–based sputtering target assemblies and electromagnet systems. The sputtering target assemblies have been sold into the rigid disk market since 1986 and are considered one of the most reliable such assemblies in the market today. Sputtering target assemblies are sold to end-users as source materials for coating other materials via a vacuum-based process called sputtering. Sputtering is employed as the primary method for depositing thin film functional and protective layers on rigid magnetic media (hard disks), as well as in many semiconductor-manufacturing operations. Once a target is made, it must usually be incorporated into the sputtering apparatus by joining it to a backing plate to make sound electrical, thermal and mechanical contact. The bonding of a target to the backing plate, which is usually made of copper, forms what is known as the 'bonded target assembly.'

Field of Use
This agreement pertains to the chemical industry relating to the coating technology.

Metal and Opaque Thin Film Measurement Solutions. Licensee's MetaPULSE family of metrology systems incorporates our proprietary technology for optical acoustic metrology, which allows customers to simultaneously measure the thickness and other properties of up to six metal or other opaque film layers in a non- contact manner on product wafers. By minimizing the need for test wafers, MetaPULSE enables Licensee's customers to achieve significant cost savings. Licensee believe that Licensee currently offer the only systems that can non-destructively measure up to six metal film layers with the degree of accuracy semiconductor device manufacturers demand. Licensee's MetaPULSE systems use ultra-fast lasers to generate sound waves that pass down through a stack of metal or opaque films such as copper and aluminum, sending back to the surface an echo which is detected and analyzed. These systems precisely measure the films with Angstrom accuracy and sub-Angstrom repeatability at high throughputs. This accuracy and repeatability is critical to semiconductor device manufacturers' ability to achieve higher manufacturing yields with the latest fabrication processes.

'Deposition Process Technology' means processes for depositing compositions of matter, including Deposition Precursor Technology, onto substrates using Deposition Plasma Jet Technology.  Plasmas have been used extensively in a wide variety of industrial and high technology applications, from semiconductor fabrication to coatings of reflective films for window panels and compact disks.

Surface cleaning is a fundamental requirement for many industrial processes. It is also important for decontamination of objects. Traditionally, surface cleaning has been accomplished using solvent-based methods, technologies which have been available for more than 100 years. Increasing concerns about ground water and air pollution, greenhouse gases, and related health and safety issues have severely restricted the use of common volatile organic solvents, and even many of the recently-adapted, less hazardous chemical substitutes.  Plasmas have been used extensively in a wide variety of industrial and high technology applications, from semiconductor fabrication to coatings of reflective films for window panels and compact disks. Plasmas ranging in pressure from high vacuum (<0.1 mTorr) to several Torr are most common, and have been used for film deposition, reactive ion etching, sputtering and other forms of surface modification. The primary advantage of plasma cleaning is that it is an 'all-dry' process, generates minimal effluent, does not require hazardous pressures, and is applicable to a wide variety of vacuum-compatible materials, including silicon, metals, glass, and ceramics.

License Grant
Licensee have agreed to acquire a series of patents and related assets and rights relating to Licensor's dynamic thin laminar flow process.
License Property
The DTLF method places single mono layer molecules of nanoscopic particles one beside the other in a homogeneous, continuous thin film production.  Large numbers of nanostructures linked together in a mono layer can facilitate larger scale actions such as a mono layer film that can function as a filter with the size of the pores controlled by the molecules that are utilized.  Mono layers are abundant in nature, for example, in all human cells.  A key difficulty in producing mono layer films whose thickness is only a few nanometer's is that they must be fabricated on a substrate whose surface corrugation is smaller than the size of a molecule. The prevalent methodology for producing such mono layer films has to date utilized the Langmuir-Blodgett method in which the molecularly-smooth water-air interface serves as a floating support for the molecular constituents of the film. The Langmuir-Blodgett method has been characterized as a single sheet, or single batch process, where production of each film is limited to single sheets and production of each new sheet requires starting the process over again. Although successful for research purposes, the Langmuir-Blodgett method is generally acknowledged as not commercially viable to the extent necessary to produce efficient, automated control nanostructure applications and products.
Field of Use
Examples of research uses of mono layers are copious, including light emitting diodes, optical fiber fluorescence sensors, and optical second harmonic generation and photoelectric conversion optical interactions.
