mPhase Technologies, Inc. (XDSL) Receives Notice of Allowance for Key Smart Surface Patent


1/24/2013 8:44:18 AM

LITTLE FALLS, NJ--(Marketwire - January 24, 2013) - mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL) reported today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) of a Key Smart Surface Patent.

The invention is a key patent for mPhase Technologies in its continuing efforts to protect the company's intellectual property related to smart surfaces.

The invention relates to a single porous substrate formed from a network of filaments wherein the network of filaments is comprised of a first plurality of filaments and a second plurality of filaments is exposed to a surface modification treatment and the second plurality of filaments is covered with a conformal coating. A wetting region comprised of the first plurality of filaments extends through a first portion of the porous substrate and is permeable to fluid transport and a non-wetting region comprised of the second plurality of filaments which is operable to switch between a wetting and non-wetting state by an electrical source coupled to the second plurality of filaments.

The invention protects a porous substrate with integrated wetting and non-wetting regions and is a key patent win for mPhase Technologies.
