Del., March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PSI-TEC Corporation,
a wholly owned subsidiary of PSI-TEC Holdings, Inc.
(Pink Sheets: PTHO), a nanotechnology firm, announced
today the completion of the penultimate step in the
fabrication process of a revolutionary new nanomaterial.
Mr. Frederick Goetz, President and CEO of PSI-TEC
Corporation, explains PSI-TEC laboratory's recent
breakthrough consists of the fabrication of an electro-optic
material constructed atom-by-atom at the molecular
level. These patented materials are expected by PSI-TEC
scientists to have broad application in civilian and
military telecommunication and advanced computational
Mr. Goetz continued: "Another major potential
application for the nanomaterials that we develop
is something called 'optical interconnect technology,'
an area of intense interest by many major players
in the high-tech arena.
"Optical interconnects will quite literally provide
computers with the ability to operate at light-speed."
Optical interconnects are the core component in the
construction of "optical computers," i.e.
computers which integrate the conduction of light
(as opposed to electricity) at various stages for
extremely high-speed computation. The development
of breakthrough electro-optic nanomaterials such as
those being developed by PSI-TEC has long been a major
obstacle in the creation of optical interconnects.
Optical interconnects, not long ago considered futuristic,
are currently the object of aggressive investigation
by Intel, IBM, Agilent Technologies and the U.S. Government.
The nanomaterials under development by the PSI-TEC
Corporation consist of many billions of individual
electron oscillators (called chromophores), each less
than three nanometers (or three billionths of a meter)
in length. These tiny oscillators operate at a quantum
mechanical level to facilitate the transformation
of electricity into light at extremely high speeds.
PSI-TEC's recent breakthrough consists of final fabrication
of these miniscule oscillators in their "ionic"
or "salt" form. The ultimate step in the
fabrication process consists of the liberation of
these electron oscillators from their ionic state
which is expected in the very near future.
"This is an extremely exciting moment for us,"
said Mr. Goetz. "This achievement is the result
of many years of molecular engineering and material
design. I can see quite clearly now that our patented
nanotechnologies will dictate how electro-optic plastics
are made from now on -- and that electro-optic plastics
are the future of all broadband telecommunication.
"Our breakthrough technology is exactly what
the industry has been waiting for."
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. PSI-TEC's
proprietary 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
ground, wireless and satellite communication networks.
