ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / October 7, 2020 / Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB:LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced the receipt of a patent on a significant new invention that improves both the performance and reliability of its high-speed, low-power electro-optic polymer modulators intended for datacenter and telecommunications applications.

U.S. Patent number 10,754,093, granted on August 25th, 2020, details an invention that allows multi-layered electro-optic polymer modulators to perform more efficiently through the design of custom interfaces. These interfaces are designed into the cladding layers that allow optical transmission, electrical conductivity, material integrity, as well as a prevention of solvents affecting adjacent polymer materials.

"I am immensely proud of our talented technical team, who developed this incredible technology in-house at our facility in Englewood, Colorado," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "This is a breakthrough technological advancement, the net impact of which allows for the company's modulators to improve performance across the board, enabling higher reliability in the fiber optic communications environment.

"This serves to further solidify our U.S. patent portfolio, protecting our technology platform and strengthening our freedom of manufacturing. With every passing year, we are increasingly competitive within the marketplace, where the need for our technology is more apparent than ever. I look forward to continued advancement of our business, creating long-term value for shareholders," concluded Lebby.
