"The first quarter of 2022 was highlighted by several
breakthrough achievements for our technology, including third party
review and verification of stability and high-temperature operation
of our world-class electro-optic polymer materials platform," said
Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive
Officer of Lightwave Logic. "The results were generated using our
proprietary, advanced Perkinamine® chromophores in Polariton
Technologies' silicon-photonics-based plasmonic racetrack
modulator. Through our collaboration with Polariton, we are clearly
demonstrating the potential for our polymer materials to become
ubiquitous in their use across the internet.
"During the quarter we also announced breakthrough
photostability results of our electro-optic polymer modulators,
which is an incredibly important metric as we optimize our polymers
for high-volume silicon foundry processes. We also completed
successful initial testing of our optical grating couplers, which
will be part of our Process Development Kits (PDKs) that will
simplify foundry processes when integrating our polymer technology
with silicon photonics. Many of our patent applications are in the
area of manufacturing simplification as well – a key aspect in
achieving deep market penetration, the importance of which cannot
"We continue to further fortify our patent portfolio as well,
receiving a new patent that allows our polymer technology platform
to turbo-charge both integrated photonics platforms as well as
fiber optic transceivers that are already being utilized by the
millions on the internet. The patent illustrates the use of our
polymer modulators as a high speed, low power engine not only for
data communication and telecommunication applications, but other
new market opportunities as well.
"We look forward to additional advancements and innovations in
the months ahead, in-line with our internal projections to further
demonstrate the immense potential of our technology. We continue to
build out our robust IP moat with each technology improvement,
helping to improve performance or simplify manufacturing. In the
months to come, we are highly focused on incorporating feedback
from our partners to enhance our positioning in anticipation of
mass market commercialization," concluded Dr. Lebby.
