ENGLEWOOD, Colo. and
ZURICH, Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave
Logic, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWLG), a technology platform company
leveraging its proprietary electro-optic (EO) polymers to transmit
data at higher speeds with less power, today announced
the achievement of world-record performance for a polymer
modulator, as demonstrated in an optical transmission experiment by
ETH Zurich, using the Company's proprietary, advanced Perkinamine™
chromophores and Polariton Technologies Ltd.'s newest plasmonic EO
modulator, a silicon-photonics-based plasmonic racetrack modulator
offering energy-efficient, low-loss, and high-speed modulation in a
The groundbreaking results were presented as a post-deadline
paper at the prestigious European Conference on Optical
Communications (ECOC) industry exhibition and conference in
Bordeaux on September 16, 2021. Polariton's plasmonic
modulator transmitted 220 Gbit/s OOK and 408 Gbit/s 8PAM.
Transmission of an optical signal was conducted over 100 m
using a low-voltage electrical drive of 0.6Vp, an
on-chip loss of 1 dB, and an optical 3 dB bandwidth of
beyond 110 GHz.
"Our mission at Lightwave Logic is to continually push the
frontiers of high-speed performance for electro-optic polymers,
shaping the 'impossible' into reality and a new normal for the
industry," said Dr. Michael Lebby,
Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "Through our
collaboration with Polariton, we have achieved a new world-record
for a racetrack plasmonic modulator device structure. The
acceptance of a post-deadline peer reviewed paper at ECOC 2021
provides third party validation of this incredible result.
"We now turn our attention to further optimizing this
performance with silicon foundries through both materials and
optical device design. With performance achievements such as this,
we believe that many companies will quickly see the potential
impact that high performance optical switching devices using our
polymers can have on their business," concluded Lebby.
Dr. Wolfgang Heni, Co-CTO at
Polariton, added: "Polariton has always been dedicated to providing
best-in-class devices with the highest-performance. Our goal is to
make optical communications faster, the technology more scalable
and with it, components and infrastructure more energy-efficient.
Our recent demonstration of a plasmonic racetrack modulator once
again showcased how the unique combination of plasmonics, silicon
photonics, and organic electro-optics offers high-speed and
energy-efficient components. We are pleased to have worked with
Lightwave Logic, providing us with high-performance and reliable
Perkinamine™ chromophores to demonstrate this new world record,
further highlighting the benefits of our plasmonic modulator
technology. Together, we hope to revolutionize the future of the
internet through adoption of next-generation electro-optic polymer
