New Patent Application to Simplify Fabrication of Polymer
Modulators Designed to Integrate with Silicon Photonics to Enable
Enhanced Internet Traffic Flow and Reduced Energy Usage
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 19,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (NASDAQ:
LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary
electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less
power, today announced the publication of a U.S. patent
application on a new invention that will simplify polymer modulator
fabrication when integrated with silicon photonics for high-volume
foundry manufacturing applications.
This patent application – entitled "TFP (thin film polymer)
optical transition device and method," – illustrates the
design of a simpler to fabricate, lower cost hybrid integrated
photonics chip using electro-optic polymers which are more
advantageous for high-volume production. The simplified
fabrication approach enables us to simplify the production of very
high speed, low power proprietary polymer modulators that will
enable significantly faster data rates in the internet
The essence of the invention is a hybrid polymer-silicon
photonics engine that fits into fiber optic transceivers (either
pluggable or co-packaged) that are used in the routers, servers and
network equipment that are proliferating with the growth of data
centers, cloud computing and optical communications capacity.
The hybrid polymer-silicon photonics engine is designed to use
high-volume silicon foundry infrastructure and is published with
publication number 2022/0113566 A1.
Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief
Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic commented, "This patent
application is core to our drive to provide a hybrid integrated
photonics platform to boost the performance of silicon photonics
technologies using our proprietary electro-optic polymers.
The patent application teaches the simplicity of fabricating the
design in standard large volume silicon foundries, further
simplifying manufacturing for our foundry partners.
"This is another important addition to our IP portfolio that
allows our polymer technology platform to become the engine for
pluggable fiber optic transceivers that are being utilized
throughout internet infrastructure. You need simplicity and
efficiency in chip design for foundries, and this patent
application serves that purpose acutely. With this patent
application, we are changing the internet and enabling faster data
– improving the lives of countless millions who rely on the
internet to work, play and communicate," concluded Lebby.
