Recently Published Scientific Paper in Prestigious Trade Journal

Discusses Industry Leading Performance and Benefits of QPC’s

Patented High Performance Chip-Based Laser Technology

SYLMAR, Calif.–(EMWPresswire)–QPC Lasers, Inc. (OTCBB: QPCI) QPC,

a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-brightness,

high-power semiconductor chip-based lasers for the consumer electronics,

industrial, defense, and medical markets, today announced the companys

technical marketing team recently published a technical paper in the

prestigious laser industry trade magazine Laser+Photonics. Dr.

Paul Rudy, Dr. Tom Steele and Dr. Laurent Vaissié

(see bios below) collaborated on the technical paper entitled More

Efficient and Less Complex which discusses

recent breakthroughs in QPCs semiconductor

laser technology which have improved the compactness, efficiency, power

and beam quality on lasers while simultaneously reducing the waste heat

and complexity of the system, thus reducing cost. The article was

published in both English and German and both are available for review

on the companys website at www.qpclasers.com

The article describes the industry leading performance and benefits of

QPCs unique and proprietary high performance

chip-based laser technology which is protected by 16 patents (9 issued,

7 pending). Proprietary processes and numerous trade secrets underlie

the companys optoelectronic technologies and

enable the extraordinary ability to generate up to a 10x reduction in

size, weight, power consumption and cost compared to conventional laser

technology available on the market today.

QPCs next

generation technology arms our customers with a number of key

competitive advantages, and we are pleased to announce this esteemed

recent publication which describes these in detail,

said President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey Ungar. With
