Lightwave Logic Announces Publication of U.S. Patent Application for Novel Process for Manufacturing Silicon Hybrid Photonic Polymer Modulators

Company obtains patent application for new manufacturing process to advance high-volume foundry potential; Enables stable, high-efficiency biasing of polymer devices with silicon photonic circuits

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 21, 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 US patent application for a new invention that will improve the manufacturing of polymer modulators in high-volume foundries when integrated with silicon photonics.

This patent application – entitled “Hybrid electro-optic polymer modulator with silicon photonics” under publication number 2022/0187637A1 – details a new manufacturing process that allows Lightwave Logic’s proprietary polymers to be manufactured by silicon foundries in a high-volume manufacturing environment. The published patent application also details a more efficient process that enables high yield, high stability polishing of polymers in a high volume foundry manufacturing environment. Development of the PDK for this new hybrid optical modulator design is now underway with the founding partners of Lightwave Logic.

dr. Michael LebbyCEO of Lightwave Logic, said, “This patent application is incredibly powerful in that it allows our silicon foundry partners to better manufacture our polymers in large volumes, all using their existing equipment. While we already have manufacturing processes such as polarization, we also need to be comfortable being able to adapt these processes to high volume manufacturing I view this published patent application as another critical step towards technology maturity polymers both as an integrated photonics platform and as a large-scale technology.

“This patent enables our polymer technology platform to become the powerhouse of pluggable fiber optic transceivers that are used throughout today’s Internet infrastructure. and enable faster data transfer – improving the lives of countless millions of people who depend on the Internet for work and play,” concluded Lebby.
