ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 that it determined that its proprietary polymer technologies  are compatible with currently available integrated photonics platforms as a direct result of feedback from several of its potential customers under NDA. 

Lightwave Logic's proprietary electro-optic materials are currently in the prototyping phase and are fabricated onto standard silicon wafers.  This advancement, driven by the feedback the company received from potential customers to-date, has allowed the company's materials to be  suitable for additive integration to integrated photonics platforms such as silicon photonics, as well as indium phosphide and other standard platforms – therefore enabling simpler integration by customers.

"This breakthrough allows a polymer modulator to enhance the performance of existing integrated photonics solutions in the marketplace, enabling higher speed and lower power consumption on foundry-fabricated photonics designs," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic.

"The fact that our technology is additive to existing platforms such as silicon photonics is critical in today's data-rich environment, as it means that electro-optic polymers are not actually competing with integrated photonic platforms, but rather enabling them to be more competitive in the marketplace. This improvement, driven by potential customer feedback, is truly exciting as it further validates our EO polymer platform as ideally suited to enable optical networking more efficiently than ever," concluded Lebby.
