Del., March 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PSI-TEC Corporation,
a wholly owned subsidiary of PSI-TEC Holdings, Inc.
(Pink Sheets: PTHO)
announced today the filing of a patent application
complementary to its
already extensive Intellectual Property (IP) holdings
in the field.
The current patent
covers novel material design of nano-materials
(materials designed at the molecular level) known
as electro-optic plastics.
Electro-optic plastics are expected by experts in
the field to have potential
applications in many civilian and military systems,
including radar, satellite
and fiber-optic telecommunications, cable television
(CATV), aerial and
missile guidance, electronic counter measure (ECM)
systems, ultraquick analog-
to-digital-conversion, land mine detection and signal
the past several years, electro-optic plastics have
demonstrated, under laboratory conditions, performance
character close to four times that of
existing telecommunication technologies. This means
plastics have already demonstrated almost four times
the bandwidth capability
of its primary competitive technology. Bandwidth is
a measure of how fast
information is transferred over the Internet.
is extremely important," explains Frederick Goetz,
and CEO of PSI-TEC, "and we believe our material
designs will far outperform
any other electro-optic material in existence, but
stability is the real Achilles' heel of electro-optic
the dirty little secret that scientists in this field
like to talk about."
The broad proliferation
of electro-optic plastics in current
telecommunication systems has in large part been limited
by issues related to
device stability. Stability is a measure of how long
and under what
conditions a device can function normally before its
begins to fluctuate or decline.
patent covers atomic-scale structures that attempt
evenly distribute electric charge (in a process known
delocalization) in order to avoid the stability issues
with electro-optic plastics.
PSI-TEC Corporation is a developmental stage company
that engineers next-
generation electro-optic (EO) plastics for future
applications vital to modern
commerce, homeland security, and medical technology.
electro-optic plastics are produced at the molecular
level for superior
performance, stability and cost-efficiency and are
expected to replace more
expensive, lower-performance materials used in fiber-optic
and satellite communication networks.
