Management Commentary

"We successfully produced two world record achievements with two  of our collaboration  partners in the third quarter, further illustrating the significant potential our technologies offer," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "Our continued improvement and forward movement reaffirm my view that our technologies are not only vastly superior in performance, but are simple to implement as well – making them the right platform for next-generation optical systems for years to come.

"Our achievement of world record performance for a silicon slot modulator using our advanced polymer material – all as part of our collaboration with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and SilOriX – shows that our materials can outperform in a variety of device structures and designs. This allows our platform to become a true 'green photonics' enabler for the industry. The acceptance of a post-deadline at ECOC 2022 provided third party validation of this significant result.

"Our second world record demonstration was of a 250GHz super high bandwidth electro-optical-electrical link through another partner collaboration, this time using Polariton's high-speed plasmonic modulators containing our proprietary PerkinamineTM chromophores and ETH Zurich's high-speed graphene photodetectors. Our incredible result demonstrates that our electro-optic polymers will be instrumental not only for next-generation high-capacity interconnects, but for the more advanced and faster links that will be required for succeeding generations.

"Looking ahead, we have positioned Lightwave as a clear thought leader in the space, demonstrating record-breaking achievements of our technologies alongside our partners – concurrent with our constant efforts to advance the commercialization of our technology. We continue to see incredible interest from industry experts attending events such as ECOC and others. I look forward to sharing our additional progress in the months to come as we strive to create sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Dr. Lebby.
