Lightwave Logic Organic Nonlinear Polymers Can Dramatically Reduce Data Center Power Costs

December 23, 2011

NEWARK, Del., Dec. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: LWLG), is a technology company focused on the development of a Next Generation Non Linear Optical Polymer Materials Platform for applications in high speed fiber-optic data communications and optical computing.

A December 13, 2011 story carried by Bloomberg News Service discussed the enormous costs incurred to cool the world’s data centers. Recent advancements in Lightwave’s organic nonlinear optical material technology have the potential to dramatically reduce power consumption in telecom, datacom and computing operations.

Jim Marcelli, CEO of Lightwave Logic commented, “The recent progress that we have made in our Perkinamine(TM)( )platform of organic nonlinear optical materials plays to the heart of the problem described in the Bloomberg article.”

“As companies like Facebook(TM)( )and Google continuously add servers to keep up with the almost limitless supply of data, they are generating enormous power requirements related to both running the equipment and keeping the environment cool. This creates a substantial business opportunity for us as we begin fabricating devices that can offer better performance, operating at lower voltage and at reduced cost. “

Terry Turpin, Lightwave Logic’s Optical Computing Guru added, “Low cost, low power modulators based on a stable organic polymer with an electro-optical effect of 250 picometers per volt will also change the telecom landscape as well. These modulators will enable ultra dense wavelength division multiplexed networks using sophisticated modulation types that will improve the capacity of existing optical fibers by an order of magnitude. They will significantly reduce the required drive voltage resulting in even greater cost saving in an area where cost is everything. Furthermore, the material can be integrated directly on a CMOS integrated circuit providing optical communications between chips.”

Dr. Louis Glasgow, the company’s Chief Technology Officers remarked, “Our recently developed material, Perkinamine Indigo(TM) has demonstrated a very large electro-optical effect with r33 numbers higher than 250 picometers per volt. It also possesses outstanding thermal stability necessary to fabricate competitive optical devices that will enable a move to organic nonlinear polymer technology.”
