Lightwave Logic's Perkinamine™ Material Achieves World-Class Performance in Collaboration with Swiss University ETH Zurich

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 28, 2024 /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 in a small form factor, today announced the latest world-class performance of the company's Perkinamine™ EO polymer material operating in an optical interconnect link, at 437.1Gbps employing a PAM8 178GBaud signal encoded by a plasmonic Mach Zehnder modulator (MZM).

In this work, intensity modulated, direct detection (IM/DD) techniques were utilized to drive higher performance. The paper, authored by ETH Zurich, demonstrated data rates beyond 400Gbps for a IM/Dd optical interconnect link for the first time.

The data center industry is currently focused on exceeding 200Gbps per lane, primarily driven by generative AI opportunities. 200Gbps per lane with 4 lanes is a current interest for 800Gbps pluggable transceiver manufacturing, which our company's EO polymers have easily achieved. This world-class result, achieving data rates of 400Gbps per lane, demonstrates that our company's EO polymers are capable of exceeding double the current industry expectation.  This has the potential to enable 4 channel 1.6Tbps (1600Gbps) pluggable transceiver modules, which is on the roadmap of datacenter operators today. 

Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic, commented: "Not only is our EO polymer material ideal for datacenter optical interconnect applications today at 200Gbps – but in my mind, this work proves beyond a doubt that polymers are here to stay, with performance headroom of over 400Gbps using a plasmonic based Mach Zehnder modulator design.  I am personally very excited not only for our talented materials team, but for the team at ETH Zurich who utilized our material for a world-class result.  1600Tbps and 3200Tbps pluggable transceivers are within our reach using our EO Perkinamine™ polymer materials, which I believe positions us to deliver sustainable value to our shareholders over the long-term."
