Lightwave Logic Receives New U.S. Patent on Improved Integrated Photonics Architectures
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 9, 2021 -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQX: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced the receipt of a U.S. patent on a new invention that enables enhanced optical routing architectures for polymer-based integrated photonics that can be scaled with partner foundries.
The new patent - U.S. Patent number 11,067,748 and entitled "Guide Transition Device and Method" – will enable innovative, highly scalable optical routing architectures for integrated photonic platforms. The patent provides novel optical waveguide transition designs using two planes of optical waveguides that are expected to be critical for optical signal routing and optical switching, opening the opportunity for high speed, energy efficient electro-optic polymers to be implemented into foundry PDKs (process development kits) to improve the performance of integrated photonic circuits.
"This exciting new patent not only turbocharges our integrated photonics platform in general, it is a powerful architectural routing patent that discloses how optical signals can be routed in two optical planes from light generation on-chip to light coupling off-chip," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "This breakthrough technology opens the door for advanced integrated photonics architectural design – something the industry has been long waiting for.
"The simplicity of the design is ideal for production in foundries, best positioning Lightwave Logic to enable increased data traffic on the internet while using less power – powering the data-hungry lifestyle of today's internet users," concluded Lebby.
