Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG)
Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG) is a development stage company that creates photonic devices that use their proprietary polymer-based material systems. The company claims that their polymer-based material systems, when used in modulators or waveguide structures, can convert high-speed electronic signals into optical (light) signals for use in communications systems, high-speed data transfer or advanced high speed computing.
Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG), based in Longmont, CO, last week announced it has achieved bandwidth suitable for 25Gbps data rates in an all-organic polymer ridge waveguide intensity modulator prototype. This is a significant improvement over its initial 10Gbps device modulator previously reported on December 26, 2016. According to the company’s press release, a modulator converts electronic/digital information into pulses of light that can traverse fiber optic cables. Modulation is the central information-encoding technology for the datacenter, data communications, and high performance computing industries. To achieve 100 Gbps, modulators are typically operated in groups of 4 (each at 25 Gbps) using a variety of circuit configurations.
