Lightwave Logic Announces Receipt of U.S. Patent for High-Volume Manufacturing Processes for Electro-Optic Polymer Modulators

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 11, 2021 — (PRNewswire) —  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 patent on a new invention to allow for improved protective polymer layers in modulators when designed into advanced integrated photonic platforms, better positioning them for high-volume manufacturing processes.

The protective layers, protected by U.S. Patent number 10,989,871, will enhance electro-optic polymer devices' performance through higher reliability, better optical performance and enable the use of standardized manufacturing processes best suited for mass-production.

"We are pleased to have further fortified our patent portfolio through this exciting invention, adding a protective layer to advance performance of integrated photonics and silicon photonics platforms – helping to scale the future of the internet by transmitting data at higher speeds with less power," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "The COVID-19 pandemic only solidified the need for solutions like ours, as the shift to working from home exposed the weakness and vulnerability of our existing internet infrastructure.

"As service providers struggle to keep up with the huge demand for bandwidth, solutions like ours will become increasingly difficult to ignore. I look forward to continued innovations in the quarters to come as we continue to build out our IP moat in advance of commercialization," concluded Lebby.
