MarketwiredMarch 29, 2017



LONGMONT, CO--(Marketwired - March 29, 2017) - Lightwave Logic, Inc. ( 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 that Dr. Fred Leonberger has been elected to the Company's Board of Directors effective April 1, 2017.

Dr. Leonberger is a widely known technologist and industry leader in the field of photonics and fiber optics. For nearly 40 years he has been a leading contributor to the development of a variety of important optical devices, company leadership, product and business strategy, and commercialization. The integrated optical modulator technology he and his colleagues pioneered has been used pervasively for over 20 years to encode data at multi-Gb/s rates in long-haul fiber optic networks (the Internet "superhighways").

He previously served as senior vice president and chief technology officer of JDS Uniphase Corporation (JDSU, now Lumentum), a leading optical components company, from 1995 until his retirement in 2003, where he played a lead role in technology strategy, mergers and acquisitions and intellectual property activities. Prior to JDSU, he was co-founder and general manager of United Technologies Photonics (UTP), a high-speed optical modulator company, and held research management positions at United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) and MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

Dr. Leonberger has served as a senior advisor to Lightwave Logic since December 2011, with emphasis on modulator/technology development. He is presently the Principal of EOvation Advisors LLC, his technology and business advisory firm, and serves or has served as a co-founder and Board member/advisor for ten private photonics companies. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the recipient of several industry awards.
