Lightwave Logic shows ultra-highspeed performance and robustness for optical communications

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Sept. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG) announces that it presented positive technical results on its high-performance material for optical communications in two talks at the prestigious European Conference on Communications (ECOC) in Dublin, Ireland this week.

CEO Dr. Michael Lebby said, "One of the key challenges that came out loud and clear at this year's conference is the need for breakthroughs in new materials to better scale to higher data rates."

The company had announced a new material that promised significantly improved performance in February. In the first public release of data on this material this week, Lightwave Logic showed measurements of the improved speed that exceeds 80 GHz. This speed can support both 100 Gbps NRZ and 200 Gbps PAM4 single-channel serial datastreams and by aggregation to multiples of those data rates such as 400 Gbps, 800 Gbps and 1600 Gbps. The data included the ability for the device to convert electrical data to optical data with excellent fidelity over a wide frequency range from low speed to high speed. This attribute is required for use with digital data. The presentation showed measurements of material response over frequency and the resulting the optical data bits stream.

The company also presented thermal stability data of the activated (electro-optic) states of these materials. In his presentation, Dr. Lebby explained that these materials are poled into a metastable state in order to activate their data-carrying characteristics. The data confirmed that the engineering of the new material resulted in higher stability.

The two well-attended presentations were both given at the European Conference on Optical Communications in Dublin, Ireland on Sunday September 22 and Tuesday Sept 24.

Energy savings drive Photonic IC roadmap to polymers

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG) is pleased to report that energy-saving polymer technology is highlighted in the recently published Integrated Photonics Systems Roadmap – International (IPSR-I). This important industry roadmap was defined jointly by a global network of Industrial and R&D partners. The roadmap model is based on the highly successful roadmap that has enabled the CMOS industry to navigate Moore's Law for decades.

Under pressure to produce improvements in Cost, Size, Weight and Power consumption (CSWaP) simultaneously, the photonics industry is using the roadmap to define how multiple technology and systems requirements can be coordinated to enable faster developments. These improvements are required to control the total cost of ownership for fundamental datacenter and sensor infrastructure that is under stress by rapid growth of data, compute and sensing.

"This roadmap highlights exactly the applications that we are tackling, as well as the challenges we and our counterparts around the world are facing," said Michael Lebby, CEO of Lightwave Logic. "Our differentiation lies in the use of polymers for high-speed active devices." Polymers are on the roadmap for both passive interconnect and active devices due to unique benefits they bring to meet the current and future challenges.

The roadmap is needed to create a common platform that spans today's most urgent need for high-volume low-mix datacom transceivers to the rapidly emerging high-mix market of Industrial Internet of Things ((I)IoT) sensors. Unlike for CMOS, the challenge is to span a wide variety of photonic technologies which each contribute specific functions. For many applications, increasing the speed of devices provides reduced cost, size and weight—but tends to increase power consumption. Hyperscale datacenters are constrained in growth by their power consumption.

"The big problem across multiple applications is that as device speeds go up, the power consumption skyrockets. If you look at the called-out requirements for datacom and, in a completely different section of the roadmap document, the requirements for RF applications, they are both asking for a roadmap to 100 GHz at low voltages that can come directly from CMOS," said Lebby. "That commonality is where you see the incredible power of an industry roadmap."

Lightwave Logic is aiming squarely at the 100 GHz, direct-drive target with a proprietary material with high electro-optic activity, meaning it can operate with very low voltage: a truly green low energy solution. Earlier this year, the company had announced a breakthrough that doubled the electro-optic activity of its material. This highly stable active polymer material enables extremely high-speed and low power optical modulators that convert data from electric signals into optical signals for transmission over optical fiber or free space.

Lightwave Logic Issues Shareholder Letter and Provides Corporate Update

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today issued a letter to shareholders from its Chief Executive Officer, Michael Lebby.



Dear Fellow Shareholders,

2019 was a watershed year for our company as we continued to innovate, grow and move ever closer to validation from key industry players. As many are familiar, we are building a technology platform leveraging our proprietary electro-optic polymers designed to help scale existing internet infrastructure by transmitting data at higher speeds with less power, which is absolutely essential as the demand for data continues its exponential growth trajectory.

Throughout 2019, we experienced breakthroughs with our materials and devices, which are garnering a significant amount of attention from key industry players. On the materials front, early in the year we announced our internally engineered electro-optic polymer material, which more than doubled the electro-optic response than our previous material. This material will continue to be tested and shows great promise for future iterations of our technology. Later in the year, we also presented data on our material stability and reliability, showcasing improved thermal stability of our internally developed materials at 85 degrees Celsius. In 2018, we talked about a modulator device with a speed of 40 GHz that could support 50-400 Gbps applications, depending on modulation scheme and integration. As we moved through 2019, we significantly improved our capabilities, showing data that our modulators could exceed 80 GHz—which is faster than currently available commercial solutions—while also being capable of supporting industry-typical 100-800 Gbps applications. We continue to discuss prototype modulator specifications with potential customers, and to-date, the feedback has been very positive.

Technology & Customer Discussions
On the technology front, we continued to push our modulators to extreme speeds while maintaining data quality and our low-voltage characteristics. This unique capability, which is paramount to our competitive advantage, already exceeds what many thought was possible with currently available commercial technology solutions. As we move through 2020, our main focus is squarely focused upon refining the performance characteristics of our technology platform, primarily surrounding better signal quality and lower voltages. We firmly believe that these final steps on our next-generation modulators will position us favorably for testing, and ultimately, market acceptance as we push to deliver an enabling solution that the data communications and telecommunications markets are rapidly working to solve.

Today, we are currently working with leading integrated circuit (IC) vendors under NDA to validate our technology with their driver chips, with the goal of providing potential customers with prototypes that can be evaluated in their systems. Typically, a customer engagement process can be lengthy, but ultimately, very rewarding over the long-run. Having been actively engaged in the NDA process and prototype specification, testing and optimization, our next steps include more detailed discussions, performance feedback and further optimization towards an initial design-in. Due to confidentiality, we are unable to disclose details of our work with potential customers under NDA; although, we continue to introduce our technology to new potential customers such as silicon photonics foundries, component suppliers, high-speed module suppliers and networking equipment companies. Initial feedback has been very positive, and we plan to provide further announcements on this front as we are able.

As we move forward, we expect our multi-pronged business model to provide Lightwave Logic with the flexibility to drive sustainable revenues over the long-term. Among these options are potentially an asset-light technology licensing model, the production and sale of components, or via a technology transfer with certain strategic customers.

Our Continued Innovation
Our in-house chemistry team continues to create new materials, in addition to those we are using in current devices. As you may recall, in spring 2019, our team announced an internally engineered electro-optic polymer material for lower-power consumption communications. Initial tests have gone very well and the material continues to look promising for meeting our performance and reliability targets. More importantly, our prospective customers are highly encouraged by our ability to engineer electro-optic polymers with specifically desired properties optimized by application. Furthermore, our anticipated ability to engineer organic polymers to suit specific applications is a key differentiator compared to inorganic materials. Due to these expected capabilities, we have seen an uptick of interest from several new markets outside optical communications, including automotive LIDAR, display/scanning, AI accelerators and quantum optic applications. As a technology platform company, this capability is essential, and we will continue to innovate while aggressively building out our intellectual property portfolio with new technological achievements.

Enhanced Investor Relations Initiatives
In 2020, we are expanding our commitment to the capital markets and to Lightwave Logic shareholders through enhanced investor relations initiatives to increase market awareness of our successes. To spearhead these efforts alongside the executive team, we have engaged investor relations specialists MZ Group to lead a comprehensive, strategic investor relations and financial communications program across all key markets. Augmenting our operational achievements with a strong capital markets awareness campaign with MZ will elevate our institutional profile with the investment community, while driving growth and building long-term shareholder value.

MZ is completing a thorough revitalization of our investor presentation, which will we completed shortly and we encourage all investors to review it once it is posted on the website. We also plan to conduct a comprehensive revamp of our corporate website.

In 2020, we will expand our presence at key investment conferences and in non-deal roadshows with institutional investors worldwide. We will provide additional details on these initiatives as appropriate, and believe our increased interface with the capital markets will benefit all Lightwave Logic stakeholders.

Final Thoughts
Industry analysts and potential customers expect the next several years to bring continued growth in the global photonics components and fiber optic transceivers markets. We believe the breakthroughs we've experienced with our technology platform could not have come at a better time as we focus the year ahead on advancing and forging relationships with some of the largest players in the industry across every level of the value chain.

As we look ahead, we will continue to interact with key players in the industry, while focusing on the key milestones we believe are most important to our business. Among these milestones in the sales cycle are collecting more stability, reliability and performance data for our packaged modulators, continued innovation of our materials, delivering packaged prototypes to potential customers, gathering feedback from those potential customers, meeting specifications the customers require, and finally, design-in and sale of our devices.

In conclusion, our goal is to forever enable and revolutionize the data transmission landscape and the future of several industries. I am proud of our team's accomplishments in 2019 and excited about our continued execution into 2020. On behalf of the entire team at Lightwave Logic, we would like to thank our fellow shareholders for their continued support. Together, we look forward to creating sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders.

Sincerely,

Michael Lebby
Chief Executive Officer

    Lightwave Logic Announces its Proprietary Polymer Technology Compatible with Standard Integrated Photonics Platforms



    Technological Improvement a Direct Result of Feedback from Potential Customers Under NDA



    ENGLEWOOD, Colo., October 15, 2020 -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced that it determined that its proprietary polymer technologies are compatible with currently available integrated photonics platforms as a direct result of feedback from several of its potential customers under NDA.



    Lightwave Logic’s proprietary electro-optic materials are currently in the prototyping phase and are fabricated onto standard silicon wafers. This advancement, driven by the feedback the company received from potential customers to-date, has allowed the company’s materials to be suitable for additive integration to integrated photonics platforms such as silicon photonics, as well as indium phosphide and other standard platforms – therefore enabling simpler integration by customers.



    “This breakthrough allows a polymer modulator to enhance the performance of existing integrated photonics solutions in the marketplace, enabling higher speed and lower power consumption on foundry-fabricated photonics designs,” said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic.



    “The fact that our technology is additive to existing platforms such as silicon photonics is critical in today’s data-rich environment, as it means that electro-optic polymers are not actually competing with integrated photonic platforms, but rather enabling them to be more competitive in the marketplace. This improvement, driven by potential customer feedback, is truly exciting as it further validates our EO polymer platform as ideally suited to enable optical networking more efficiently than ever,” concluded Lebby.

    Lightwave Logic Provides Corporate Update on Strategic Intellectual Property Development EffortsAggressive IP Strategy Designed to Protect All Aspects of the Company's Proprietary Solutions; Continues to Extend Effective Life of Patent Protection on Core & Next-Generation Technologies in Key Global Markets

    January 28, 2021



    ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced a corporate update on its aggressive intellectual property development efforts, designed to extend the effective life of patent protection on both the Company's core and next-generation technologies in key global markets.

    "Our technology platform leverages our proprietary electro-optic polymers, designed to help scale existing internet infrastructure by transmitting data at higher speeds with less power, which is absolutely essential as the demand for data continues its exponential growth trajectory," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "The need for technology like ours became apparent during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, as stay-at-home orders drove immense internet traffic, forcing some companies to throttle speeds and temporarily disable the option for HD video streaming in certain regions. This is the moment when many began to realize the importance of what we are doing at Lightwave Logic.

    "Our intellectual property portfolio, designed to strengthen our freedom of manufacturing in the field, now spans over 70 domestic and international patents and patent applications. As we continue to aggressively develop our intellectual property portfolio in advance of future commercial initiatives, we have added and continue to add a number of exciting new patents and patent applications for technologies we developed to address feedback from our ongoing evaluations with potential customers.

    "All of these new inventions over the past year all add to our already robust IP portfolio. The breadth and depth of our patent portfolio is impressive, allowing freedom of manufacturing in today's competitive environment. While prior to today the company has noted publicly that it has over 50 issued patents that support our electro-optic polymer platform, if patent applications and international derivatives are included that number increases to over 70 as noted above," continued Lebby.

    "Our portfolio of patents is strongest in the materials segment, where we maintain over 35 patents enabling unrivaled performance characteristics. As we have noted for the past year, we have been focusing on building strong and defendable patents in fabrication of chromophores with polymer materials and in this segment, we have achieved over 7 patents to-date. Designing electro-optical materials into high performing chromophores, and then fabricating them into modulator devices has allowed us to patent a number of high performing designs and structures. This has led us to build our device portfolio to over 15 patents. Electro-optic polymer modulator devices need to be packaged for operation, and we have also proudly generated over 15 high-performance package patents so that our modulators can be prototyped in data centric applications. In addition, we currently are processing a number of new inventions in the materials, chemistry, fabrication, devices and packaging spaces that are currently under review at the U.S. Patent office.

    "IP efforts such as these serve to further solidify our U.S. and International patent portfolio, protecting our technology platform and strengthening our competitive position in the industry. As we continue to generate strong interest from industry players, our IP portfolio will enable us to consider complementary revenue opportunities as we progress with potential partners in 2021 to address the telecommunications and datacenter segments of the market.

    "I can proudly say that the tireless efforts of our engineers and scientists have created a very strong competitive position for the company. I look forward to continued success on this front as we march ever closer to mass commercialization – a key milestone in our efforts to create sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Lebby.
