ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / May 12, 2020 / Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB:LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today provided a corporate update in conjunction with the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.
Recent Company Highlights:
- Announced breakthrough test results for the Company's latest electro-optic polymer material, which exceeded target performance at 1310 nanometers, a wavelength commonly used in high-volume datacenter fiber optics.
- During COVID-19, the Company temporarily curtailed most of its business operations at its facility from mid-March through May 1, 2020; however, a majority of employees continued to work from home, resulting in the filing of four new patents, extensive chemistry and device simulation, review of fabrication procedure with data analysis, and continued engagement with potential customers and partners.
