Lightwave Logic Announces Publication of U.S. Patent Application for New Hybrid Photonics to Improve Modulator Manufacturing in High-Volume Foundry Manufacturing

New Patent Application to Simplify Manufacturing of Polymer Modulators Designed to Integrate with Silicon Photonics to Improve Internet Traffic Flow and Reduce Power Consumption

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Lightwave Logic, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optical polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, announced today today published a U.S. patent application for a new invention that will simplify the manufacture of polymer modulators when integrated with silicon photonics for high-volume foundry manufacturing applications.

This patent application – entitled “Device and method for optical transition TFP (thin film polymer)” – illustrates the design of a hybrid integrated photonic chip that is easier to manufacture and lower cost using electro-optical polymers that are more advantageous for production. at high volume. The simplified manufacturing approach allows us to simplify the production of very high-speed, low-power, proprietary polymer modulators that will enable significantly faster data rates in the Internet environment.

The essence of the invention is a polymer-silicon hybrid photonic engine that integrates into fiber optic transceivers (pluggable or co-packaged) that are used in routers, servers and proliferating networking equipment with the growth of data centers, cloud computing and optical communications capability. The polymer-silicon hybrid photonic engine is designed to use a high-volume silicon foundry infrastructure and is released under publication number 2022/0113566 A1.

dr. Michael LebbyCEO of Lightwave Logic, said, “This patent application is central to our drive to provide a hybrid integrated photonics platform to improve the performance of silicon photonics technologies using our proprietary electro-optical polymers. The patent application teaches the simplicity of manufacturing the design in standard, high-volume silicon foundries, further simplifying manufacturing for our foundry partners.

“This is another significant addition to our IP portfolio that enables our polymer technology platform to become the powerhouse of pluggable fiber optic transceivers that are used throughout the Internet infrastructure. You you need simplicity and efficiency in chip design for foundries, and this patent application serves that purpose. With this patent application, we are changing the internet and enabling faster data – improving the lives of countless millions of people who depend on the Internet for work, play and communication,” concluded Lebby.
