Lightwave Logic Initiates Development of an All-Optical Transistor
NEWARK, Del., March 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: LWLG), 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, announced that through its collaboration with City University Of New York (CUNY) it has fabricated its first-ever all optical waveguide using one of the company’s Third-order Perkinamine NR(TM) chromophores. The company made this announcement and discussed the potential applications at the 23rd Annual Roth Capital OC Growth Stock Conference, yesterday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dana, Point California. A replay of the presentation can be accessed at the following URL:
Jim Marcelli, chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic stated, “The development of our Third-order Perkinamine NR(TM) chromophores is a tremendous scientific achievement in its own right and moves our company into the vanguard of optical polymer science. This is a game-changing material and we are proud of the fact that we have attained this historic milestone 2 years ahead of our own development forecast.”
Vinod Menon, Associate Professor of Physics and Member of the CUNY Photonics Initiative, commented, “The fact that this polymer survives 170 degrees Celsius and still shows the same optical properties makes it an ideal candidate for nonlinear optical devices in planar photonic integrated circuits.”
Dave Eaton, Chief Scientific Officer said, “While the CUNY team will be testing the non-linear properties of our material deposited in these newly fabricated waveguides at Brookhaven National Laboratories at the end of the month, this is the same material that was recently tested by Professor Biaggio at Lehigh University who reported that it was 100 times stronger than the highest off-resonance small molecule currently known.”
“This is the first step toward the development of an all-optical transistor,” Dr. Eaton added.
