Lightwave Logic Makes the Case for its Energy-saving Designer Molecules at ECOC 2019

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Sept. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc.  (LWLG) announced today that it will be providing the first technical results following its prior announcement of a materials breakthrough in February. The company CEO will be giving two presentations at the prestigious European Conference on Communications (ECOC) in Dublin, Ireland next week.

At the heart of Lightwave Logic's PerkinamineTM electro-optic polymers are its designer molecules or chromophores. The chromophores along with their supporting materials are a complex engineered material system which can be designed to target specific applications. The company's new material is being developed for the multi-billion-dollar telecom and data markets supporting Internet, 5G and IoT (Internet of Things) webscale services. The goal is to lower electrical power and hardware cost which have become exorbitant under the insatiable demand for data networking. As a class of materials, electro-optic polymers have excellent natural properties, which results in both unmatched speed and lower drive voltage. The improved material doubles the speed and halves the devices' voltage requirements compared to the company's existing material and industry-wide conventional materials.

On Sunday Sept 22, CEO Dr. Michael Lebby will lead off a workshop on Hybrid Photonic Integrated Circuits with the talk entitled "Polymer modulators enable the next generation of speeds and low power in optical networks." (See ECOC Workshops)  Extremely high data rates in fiber networks for datacenters are a hot topic at the ECOC, one of the most prestigious and long-standing technical conferences and tradeshow events in its field. This forum combines the latest progress reports from the world's top research laboratories, commercial product demonstrations from major vendors and application requirements from giant service providers. 

On Tuesday Sept 24, Dr. Lebby will give a presentation in the ECOC Market Focus program entitled "Polymer modulators with >50GHz performance for power consumption reduction at 400, 800, and 1600 Gbaud aggregated datarates." (See  Market Focus Program)  Based on the previously published abstract, this talk will present measurements of over 50GHz bandwidth which exceed the speeds currently used to support the latest100 Gbps PAM4 datarates. Higher optical speeds can reduce the power consumption and cost which goes into compensating electronics at both transmit and receive ends of the link. It will also discuss the potential to drive polymer modulator bandwidths in excess of 80GHz. It will also put these results in the context of the latest work in photonics roadmaps (IPSR – International Photonics Systems Roadmap process, 2019) that look out towards 1600Gbps with polymer-based technologies.
