Chief Executive Officer Dr. Michael Lebby to Discuss the Rapid Progress in Electro-Optic (EO) Polymer Materials
ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / June 8, 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 announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Michael Lebby, will lead a presentation at the 2020 Integrated Photonics System Roadmap as part of the AIM Photonics Spring Meeting, which will take place virtually on June 8-9, 2020.
The presentation will review the continued rapid progress in the development of electro-optic (EO) polymer materials, which is now being accelerated by the application of computational chemistry. In his talk, Dr. Lebby will provide anticipated industry roadmap trends for both active, as well as passive, optical polymers.
The roadmap to be discussed covers the entire integrated photonic supply chain outlook and critical issues for the next 20 years. Polymers are one of multiple technologies, all of which are reviewed in the context of datacom/telecom, internet of things, automotive, aerospace, bio/medical, sensors and radio frequency (RF) photonics applications.
Lightwave Logic recently announced a new material that extends EO polymer's fiber optic application space from the high-performance telecommunications 1550 nm wavelength window now to include high-volume datacom 1310 nm wavelength market segment.
"As engineered materials, EO polymers are not only inherently faster and easier to drive, but their properties can be tuned for different applications, and with the increased window that now includes 1310nm, the opportunities for active polymers will increase substantially," said Dr. Lebby. "When you look at a long-term roadmap like the IPSR that not only addresses active polymers, but passive polymer optical waveguides as well, you can really see the huge potential for polymer photonics integration and advanced co-packaging solutions."
