Dr. Lebby: Polymer Photonics to Challenge Incumbent Indium Phosphide
Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a technology company focused on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non-Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high speed fiber-optic data communications and optical computing, announced today that Dr. Michael Lebby, one of the foremost opinion leaders in the photonics industry and board member of the Company addressed industry executives both at the PIC (Photonic Integrated Circuit) conference in Eindhoven, South of the Netherlands on September 23, 2015, and the data center symposium at ECOC organized by Phoxtrot – the European funded consortium on data centers in Valencia, Spain on September 29, 2015.
During his presentations Dr. Lebby coined the term Integrated Photonics to describe what he saw as an unprecedented move to the miniaturization of photonics functions on a single chip and drew an analogy to the development of Integrated Circuits for computers.
Also during the presentation, he discussed Polymer Photonics and Silicon Photonics as competitive forces that could challenge Indium Phosphide—widely regarded as the incumbent technology.
Dr. Lebby stated, “Lightwave Logic is in the vanguard of polymer photonics. Its multi-chromophore process has already developed promising materials that offer the scalability and performance necessary to challenge Indium Phosphide, especially for high volume datacenter market opportunities. Polymers also have inherent advantages when compared to Silicon Photonics.”
Tom Zelibor, Chairman and CEO of Lightwave Logic commented, “It’s great to gain exposure to the worldwide industry that is now beginning to take notice of our scientific achievements to date. We have developed a family of advanced polymer materials designed to surpass the performance requirements of the telecom and datacom industries. We have been making steady progress towards commercialization. Read more
