Thursday, February 21, 2008
Company Increasing Value Through Innovation
Sylmar, CA -- QPC Lasers, Inc. (OTCBB: QPCI) "QPC," a world leader in the design and manufacture of high brightness, high power semiconductor lasers for the consumer electronics, industrial, defense, and medical markets, announces that it was granted a new patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The company now holds seven issued patents and nine patents pending.
"This new patent further expands the protection of our intellectual property portfolio to cover new technologies in areas relevant to important new product developments," said President and CEO, Jeff Ungar, Ph.D. "Building out our patent portfolio helps to preserve our position of technology leadership in the high power laser diode arena and to defend the competitive advantage of our products. This generates added value for our shareholders and increases our overall value proposition as a company."
Patent number US 7,269,195, titled "Laser Diode With an Amplification Section That has a Varying Index of Refraction," protects a concept unique to QPC for combating the self-focusing phenomenon found in other high powered laser diodes. Self-focusing causes conventionally designed laser diodes to produce poor quality beams when operated at high power, and QPC’s technological solutions for overcoming problems of this nature are key to providing the Company with its strong competitive advantage.
