ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 16, 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 test results from new modulators fabricated in 2021, which exceeded bandwidth design targets and achieved triple the data rate as compared to competing devices in use today.

The unparalleled modulator devices were designed and fabricated in Lightwave logic’s Colorado facility on a silicon semiconductor platform. The breakthrough new devices demonstrated 3dB electro-optical with electrical bandwidths that exceed 100GHz – with measurements coming close to Lightwave Logic’s state-of-the-art 110GHz test equipment capability. 

«I am incredibly proud of our team’s accomplishment – representing roughly tripling of the data rates possible in fiber optic communications.  This advancement is expected to have a profound impact on the traffic flow on the internet,» said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer. «In today’s systems we see optical modulators that perform with 3dB optical bandwidths around 30-40GHz and this translates to 50Gbps NRZ, or 100Gbps PAM4.  These speeds are simply not fast enough: they have to be improved.»

«Our devices are approximately 3 times faster and 100GHz 3dB bandwidth corresponds to a baud rate of 150GBps and 150 Gbps NRZ, or 300Gbps PAM4.  The potential impact for increased traffic is huge and this helps all of us when we use video platforms at home or while out-of-the-office,» concluded Lebby.
