Lightwave Logic Discusses High Speed Ethernet Materials

May 19, 2017

Yesterday, Lightwave Logic held a shareholder meeting where the keynote discussion was centered on “Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non-Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems.” It centered on fiber optics and the type of materials that will be needed to facilitate the high speed communications that the future demands. The goals of Lightwave coming out of the meeting are lofty but achievable: they wish to be able to facilitate speeds of 100 mbps and 400 mbps.

Dr. Michael Leddy, the CEO of Lightwave, was the person running the point during these discussions. He believes that Lightwave’s current 25 Gbps ridge waveguide monitor is properly suited to handle current business demands of Internet speeds of 100 mbps. He also presented data from models and simulations, which, while not currently in production, do suggest that a similar approach to Lightwave’s current model could be used to create a 50 Gbps device. This would allow for 400 mbps fiber optic speeds, something that is beginning to become an industry demand.

“The team has come a long way in the past 3 months with our 25Gbps modulator, and we are now laser-focused on moving the technology from prototype to marketplace,” Leddy commented after the meeting. “Our team is expanding with more world-class engineers being hired to accelerate development of 25Gbps all-organic ridge waveguide modulator, as well as hone the performance.”

There have been a lot of exciting developments being made in the tech world that have the potential to revolutionize every aspect of our lives, such as high quality video conferencing and massive cloud based collaboration networks. However, none of these ideas will be feasible, much less scalable, unless the speed that data can be transferred over the Internet can be massively increased worldwide. Lightwave Logic is working on catching the Internet up to speed with its fiber optics solutions. Its revolutionary work with materials is helping the speed of data transfer keep up with the developments of the world.
