Patent portfolio progress update
Archer Materials Limited (ASX: AXE) is pleased to provide shareholders with an update and summary on patent prosecution progress related to the Company’s 12CQ quantum computing qubit processor chip. International patent applications associated with the 12CQ chip are lodged in six jurisdictions.
The additional IPA in Japan recently resulted in the first granted patent for the 12CQ chip. The granting of the JP Patent (Patent No. 6809670) has led to the advance of the patent granting process and procedures for IPAs in several jurisdictions.
First Office Actions have been received from Patent Offices of the United States of America, China, and Australia. Receiving FOAs is a key step in the process for the grant of a patent in the administering jurisdiction.
The Company has accelerated the prosecution process and procedures of IPAs where possible, e.g. filing a PACE request with the European Patent Office and accessing review programs in the Republic of Korea.
The European and Korean IPAs have progressed in the substantive examination procedures since Oct 2020, and more recently the Korean IPA, following the JP Patent granting. The Company will continue to release key progress in its patent prosecution to ASX.
