Origin of the Technology

  Center for Quantum Electronics

For over a quarter of a century the Center for Quantum Electronics of the University of Texas at Dallas under its Director, Prof. Carl B. Collins has served Texas as the premier institute for education and research in laser-related technologies. Its scientists have published more than 200 papers in learned journals, conducted $20,000,000 of contract and grant research, supported the PhD research of 35 Graduate Students, and patented unique technologies.

Developed under the direction of Dr. Farzin Davanloo, of particular interest are our nanophase diamond films.  Often termed Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) films, they are described in our patents covering Process, Method, Material, and Bonding for Non-Crystalline Diamond Films. The latter two protect the technology even when lower quality material is made by cheaper non-laser technologies.
