Lightwave Logic Announces Publication of Materials Chemistry Patent Application to Dramatically Improve Polymer Performance


Publication of a patent application to improve the stability and performance of Lightwave’s proprietary polymers for Internet applications with Silicon Foundry Partners

ENGLEWOOD, Col., January 3, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Lightwave Logic, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWLG), a technology platform company that harnesses its proprietary electro-optical polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced the publication of its patent application 20210405504A1 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) – titled “Nonlinear optical chromophores to which a diamondoid group is attached, their preparation methods and their uses” – which considerably improves the stability and the overall performance of the Company’s electro-optical polymers.

The invention of materials chemistry aims to improve the performance of the company’s electro-optical chromophores and their use in high-speed electro-optical modulators, which are designed to generate data rates 2-3 times faster and with a power 2 to 3 times less than that of the technologies in place in -use today.

Specifically, chromophores are designed to have one or more diamond iodine molecular groups attached to the chromophore. When such chromophores are dispersed in a host polymer matrix, the electro-optical materials result in improved macroscopic electro-optical properties, increased polarization efficiency, increased charge as well as increased stability of these materials after polarization.

The impact of the technology disclosed in the published patent application is significant as it will accelerate the implementation of very high speed, low power electro-optical polymers in large foundry process development kits (PDKs). ) to improve the performance of integrated systems. photonic circuits.

Dr. Michel lebby, CEO of Lightwave Logic, commented, “This patent application reflects the world-class work done at Lightwave Logic. This dramatically improved performance from a chemistry and materials perspective allows us to remain focused on partnering with silicon foundries and seamlessly integrating our electro-optical polymers.

“In technical terms, this chromophore is important because it represents a class of materials that has extraordinary electroptical properties such as high polarization efficiency and high r33. What is important for silicon foundry applications is a high Tg material which exhibits ultra-high temporal stability at high chromophoric loading in the bulk material, while retaining other essential properties such as solubility and compatibility with many types of polymers, due to its unique structural components.

“The elegance of this material chemistry design is perfect for integrated photonics that can be fabricated in large silicon foundries. The impact of being able to optimize our designs is clear: the potential not only to increase the flow of data and data traffic on the Internet, but to create energy efficient solutions that help support the lifestyle of people. more and more data-hungry of today’s consumer. This exciting development positions us well as we seek to develop our relationships with our partners and potential customers in 2022, ”concluded Lebby.
