Other Information

Products and Technologies:

 

Imaging systems:

  • Zecotek has three patent protected and proprietary imaging technologies:
  1. LFS scintillation crystals
  2. Solid‐state MAPD photo detectors and transistors
  3. Integrated detector modules (IDM)
  • Zecotek’s LFS scintillation crystals and solid-state MAPD photo detectors offer significant cost and performance advantages over existing imaging technologies.
  • The IDM is a patent pending layered structure made of three principle components: an array of LFS scintillation crystals, an array of MAPD solid-state photo detectors and a readout system.

3D Technologies (Display and Printing):

  • Zecotek’s patented 3D Display technology represents a new generation of glasses-free 3D display.
  • Eliminates the need for ALP (accessory light modulator package) boards, allowing for significantly cheaper, more compact and commercially viable displays.
  • Zecotek is also developing a compact, high-speed 3D printer which will use high performance metal alloys and offers technical and commercial advantages over competing technologies.
  • The new 3D printer is targeted for prototyping and distributed manufacturing with specific applications in electronics, aerospace, automotive, mechanical and healthcare industries.
