Lightwave Logic to Present at ECOC and PIC Conferences
Englewood, Colorado, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a leader in electro-optic polymer technology, today announced several presentations to be given in the next two weeks. Participation in these events demonstrates the company’s commitment to advancing the dynamic photonic communications market with its hybrid integration technology that has the capability of 100Gbaud1 data transmission with only 1-volt drive signal.
ECOC, held this year from September 24 to 26, 2018 in Rome, Italy at the Fiera Roma Exhibition Center is one of the most prestigious and long-standing technical conferences and tradeshow events in this 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.
Lightwave Logic CEO Michael Lebby will speak on Tuesday September 25 in the Market Focus session of the commercial exhibition on “Pushing the performance of 50Gbps NRZ polymer modulators towards 100Gbps NRZ in a PIC platform to access 400 and 800Gbps data rates”.
The talk will discuss Mach-Zehnder measurements which show design capability to achieve fully standardized 400Gbps data communications using a polymer photonics integrated circuit P2IC™ technology platform. The talk will further discuss how the technology platform will scale both in higher-speed performance as well as in lower cost to extend the optical roadmap to 800Gbps.
He will follow up on Wednesday September 26 with a technical presentation at the International Symposium on Hybrid PICs, co-located with ECOC, entitled “Polymer PICs: technology and prospects”. This talk will focus on the fundamental technology that allows electro-optic polymers to achieve the target of 100 Gbaud with power-saving low voltage modulation. Polymers are intrinsically suited for a simple hybrid implementation that is synergistic with either Silicon or Indium Phosphide.
The following week, on October 2, VP of Marketing Karen Liu will present at thePhotonic Integration Conference, an executive session held as part of Photonics Applications Week in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. In “Scaling for speed: the impact of polymer PICs on optical roadmaps” she will discuss how intrinsically higher-speed devices such as polymer modulators can alleviate the need for complex tradeoffs and extend the current optical roadmaps.

11Gbaud refers to the number of symbols transmitted. Through coding, information is transmitted at the same or higher bit rates. For example, 100 Gbaud provides 100 Gbit/s transmission with NRZ (non-return-to-zero) coding or 200 Gbit/s with PAM4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation-4 symbol) coding, Other coding schemes are also possible.
