Diamondoid Patent Improves Stability and Performance of Lightwave's Proprietary Polymer Materials for Datacenter Applications to Address Increasing Generative AI Demand Across the Internet

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 1, 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 issuance of patent 11,921,401 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) – entitled 'Nonlinear Optical Chromophores Having a Diamondoid Group Attached Thereto, Methods of Preparing the Same, and Uses Thereof' issued on March 5, 2024, which has been shown to significantly improve the overall stability and performance of the company's EO chromophores.

This materials-based chemical-engineered invention advances the overall performance of the company's EO chromophores and their use in high-speed, low power and commercial-grade EO polymer modulators that operate at 200Gbps with drive voltage levels of 1V. The proprietary chromophores are designed with Diamondoid molecular groups that are attached to the chromophore. Results show that when these chromophores are dispersed in a host polymer matrix, the EO materials result in improved macroscopic EO properties, increased poling efficiency, increased loading as well as increased stability of these materials after poling.

The impact of the technology disclosed is significant in that it will increase the overall robustness of polymer materials that are utilized in optical modulator devices. Further, the materials can be easily utilized in silicon foundries for high-volume manufacturing processes.

Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic, commented: "This is an exciting invention that adds to our already robust material patent portfolio, which I firmly believe will help us bring in more commercial license deals for our EO polymers, especially as we work with high-volume manufacturing silicon foundries and 200mm silicon wafers. We see this material as a key component for next generation 800Gbps and 1600Gbps pluggable optical transceiver modules that support the rise of generative AI and upgrading of datacenter hardware equipment."
