Scio Diamond - Patents, Shipments And Production - Scio Moving Ahead

GREENVILLE, SC, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Scio Diamond Technology Corporation (OTC-BB: SCIO.OB) announced today that two more of their patents have been approved, international shipments have started and another production milestone has been met.  The two US Patents that were approved are as follows.

It is very important that we continue to develop our Intellectual Property and its associated protection," states, Joe Lancia, Scio's CEO.  "We have been fortunate to this point in our strategic plan to achieve significant sales and production results.  We must never rest on our laurels with regard to R&D.  The following two patents, reinforce our vision for the future of Scio, as well as it's current state."

Method Of Growing Single Crystal Diamond In A Plasma Reactor - Synthetic monocrystalline diamond compositions having one or more monocrystalline diamond layers formed by chemical vapor deposition, the layers including one or more layers having an increased concentration of one or more impurities (such as boron and/or isotopes of carbon), as compared to other layers or comparable layers without such impurities. Such compositions provide an improved combination of properties, including color, strength, velocity of sound, electrical conductivity, and control of defects. This process produces a conductive layer on top of a non-conductive layer, which is one embodiment. That allows for device layers grown into the diamond. The other is strain relief that allows faster electron flow.  These layers are used for color, sound transmission, electrical and structural compositions to make devices or increase capabilities of CVD diamond. "This is used in semiconductor devices to enhance device performance," says Joe Lancia, Scio's CEO.

Retail Compatible Detection of CVD Grown Diamond - This is a system that includes a radiation source to provide short wavelength light.  A holder positions a table of a gemstone to receive the light.  A detector is positioned to receive fluorescent light from the gemstone when the gemstone is a CVD grown gemstone.  It changes the wavelength of UV radiation source to produce a scintillator using a CVD diamond. It creates a light source, which shows radiation as light using a CVD diamond substrate. A detector can be used to measure light output and calibrated to a radiation level.

"The last two weeks, has shown the beginning of our international shipments of product, beginning the fulfillment of our largest order to date, says Mike McMahon, COO.  "This may just be the most important milestone yet, as it is specifically focused on customer satisfaction."

Over the last couple of weeks Scio has implemented new phases of its mass production phases.  It most recently had a single grow of over 100 carats of new growth single crystal CVD diamond.  McMahon says, "This was the first major move from our S3524 diamond seed growth technology.  Increasing the number diamond stones being grown, coupled with controlled condition and some recipe adjustments has allowed us to improve production by almost 50% over runs a month ago.
