ENGLEWOOD, Colo. , May 25, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Lightwave Logic, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced enhanced photostability results on the company’s proprietary electro-optic polymer modulators – demonstrating the reliability necessary for commercial deployments – all based on a technology which can be ported into high-volume silicon foundries and integrated onto a silicon photonics platform with other optical devices.
Photostability is a critical performance metric required both in high volume manufacturing processes (such as photolithography) and in offering the high reliability and network availability required for commercial deployments. In the tests conducted, subjecting the company’s latest polymers to high intensity optical power for over 3000 hours produced no change in device performance. The ability of Lightwave Logic’s proprietary polymers to pass this accelerated photostability aging test provides assurance that they both tolerate the optical exposures which occur in high-volume manufacturing and support the reliability over the required operating life of optical transceivers and network elements.
Dr. Michael LebbyChief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic, commented: “These photostability results demonstrate both the compatibility with standard semiconductor manufacturing processes needed for security of supply and the high reliability needed for commercial deployments. Our technology is well positioned to become a key enabler for upgrading the speed of the internet, as well as decreasing power consumption, both of which are now the Achilles Heel for internet network architectures.
“When we talk to potential customers excited about the performance offered by our polymers, the two questions they always ask are, firstly, whether our polymers can be manufactured using standard processes, and secondly, do our polymers have the reliability required to support high network availability and the specified operating life for commercial deployments. With these results – building upon the foundation of our previous stability results – we can answer affirmatively for both – which is very exciting as we seek to make our polymers ubiquitous in the internet infrastructure landscape. “
