New Release

Lightwave Logic CEO Dr. Michael Lebby Invited to Speak about Polymer-based Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) at ECOCs Prestigious Market Focus Sessions in Gothenburg, Sweden

Dr. Lebby will provide an overview of the recent advancements of polymer PICs and an update on integrated photonic roadmaps
Longmont, Colorado, Aug. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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 telecommunications, announced today it has accepted a highly visible invited talk and short interview in September in Europe to address Lightwave Logic’s latest advances in polymer based PIC technology, and specifically, Lightwave’s Mach-Zehnder modulator prototype using a ridge waveguide design.

ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communications) is the major technical conference and exhibit for optical communications in Europe and is world renowned for attracting by many thousands of visitors both individual and company attendees globally. This year the conference will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden.  

Dr. Lebby’s invited talk is entitled, “Polymer PICs as a platform for 100G and 400G photonics and an update on photonic roadmaps for integrated photonics” The event will take place in the Market Focus sessions on Photonic Integration and Digital Silicon Photonics on Wednesday, 20th Sep, 14:25 – 14:55 (

The presentation-based on a previously published abstract will review the latest work in photonics roadmaps for 400Gbps and 800Gbps (as Lightwave contributed to the IPSR – International Photonics Systems Roadmap process in 2017).

Additionally, Dr. Lebby will discuss new opportunities for polymer based high-speed modulators that are expected to scale in cost performance utilizing Mach-Zehnder polymer modulators to enable full standardized 100Gbps data center and high-performance computing applications using Lightwave Logic’s proprietary advanced polymer photonics integrated Circuit (P2IC™) platform currently targeting 400Gbps and beyond. Dr. Lebby will also provide an overview of the latest in photonics roadmaps that resulted from the IPSR – International Photonics Systems Roadmap process that occurred in The Netherlands on June 14, 2017.

Dr. Lebby commented, “The fiber communications eco-system is beginning to recognize that our polymer based PIC technology can solve the juggernaut that has prevented legacy systems from cost-effectively increasing performance.   We expect more visibility and exposure will entice potential stakeholders.

“I also intend to update the exciting technical progress Lightwave Logic has achieved this year.   We are honored to be able to promote a polymer PIC platform that can cost-effectively scale not only at 100Gbps to 400Gbps, and beyond.”
