Dr. Lebby noted: This is a proud moment for both Lightwave Logic, and the integrated photonics technology that I have promoted, nurtured, developed, and manufactured over my career both leading programs inside large corporations as well as an entrepreneur scaling PIC technology in start-up and SME (small, and medium-sized enterprise) companies. I have technically engaged with III-V compound semiconductor technologies such as GaAs and InP and III-N technologies such as GaN/InGaN, as well as Silicon Photonics which include SiGe, and Dielectric Photonics. More recently, with Lightwave Logic’s electro-optic polymer PIC platform in the Polymer Photonics field.
I would like to thank those who voted for me, as well as those with whom I have collaborated over the years to allow me to win this prestigious award at the world’s largest and most prestigious PIC conference globally.
Dr. Lebby added, “I hope through this award that it stimulates other PIC technologists to drive new and innovative PIC programs both in large corporations, SMEs, and start-ups into successful businesses. As I will indicate in tomorrow’s invited talk, Lightwave Logic’s advancement in polymer-based PICs: PICs are Here to Stay – They are a game changer for the photonics community.”
