Integrated Photonics System Roadmap Defines and Creates Future PIC Technology and Systems Requirements for Industry that Span out to 2040

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 16, 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, substantially contributed to the recently published "Integrated Photonics System Roadmap – International" (IPSR-I) to accelerate the high-volume commercial manufacturing of high-value integrated photonics over the next decade and beyond.

Led by foundation PhotonDelta and the Microphotonics Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the IPSR-I is based on the highly influential semiconductor industry roadmap that outlined research priorities and has enabled the semiconductor industry to navigate Moore's Law for integrated photonics. These non-competitive industry roadmaps also serve stakeholders, investors and research analysts as a resource for industry trends, research, and commercial opportunities.  

More than 400 technology, academic and industrial organizations from around the world contributed to IPSR-I. The IPSR-I describes a route toward building a global, aligned integrated photonics industry with the ability to help solve major societal challenges. It includes a comprehensive overview of major technology gaps for volume manufacturing of photonic integrated circuits (PIC) and a detailed analysis of the challenges that the integrated photonics industry needs to overcome to achieve its potential.

Lightwave Logic was instrumental in two chapters of the IPSR-I, serving as co-chair of the "Transceivers" chapter and chair of the "Polymers" chapter.  The company also contributed to the "Interconnects" chapter. 'Transceivers' are a critical commercial pluggable optical engine, for example in hyperscaler datacenters, telelcom networks, and high-performance computing. 'Interconnects' focuses on optical fiber links that connect pluggable optical transceivers together for routers, switches, computational systems etc. 'Polymers' focuses on active electro-optic polymers for optical modulators as well as passive polymers that guide and manipulate light in fiber optic communications markets.

"We were privileged to be invited to contribute to the updated IPSR-I to establish and sustain a trust based global network of industrial and R&D partners, working together to create PIC technology and systems requirements," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "These requirements comprise the commercial factors that will compose and grow the accelerating photonics industry going forward for all companies, with our focus on our Perkinamine® Electro-Optic polymers. The integrated photonics roadmaps both plan and anticipate commercial opportunities as well as potential roadblocks and/or critical needs on the way to scaling the manufacturing of integrated photonics through 2040.  The silicon semiconductor industry has relied on these types of roadmaps for the past 50 years and with IPSR-I, the photonics industry is becoming organized and more influential as well."

"With our first commercial material supply and license agreement for our electro-optic polymer materials and ongoing efforts to build on this commercialization momentum, we continue to believe Lightwave Logic will become a stronger technological and commercial leader in the photonics industry," concluded Lebby.
