ENGLEWOOD, Colo., July 17, 2018 — Photonic data communication technology developer Lightwave Logic Inc. has acquired the polymer technology intellectual property assets of BrPhotonics Productos Optoelectrónicos SA, a Brazilian corporation.

This acquisition advances Lightwave Logic's patent portfolio of electro-optic polymer technology with 15 polymer chemistry materials, devices, packaging, and subsystems patents. It also aims to strengthen the company's design capabilities as it prepares to enter the 400-Gbps integrated photonics marketplace with an alternative to installed legacy systems.

"BrPhotonics' intellectual property patent portfolio dovetails well with Lightwave Logic's development of 50-Gbps packaged modulators as part of its P2IC platform to address 400-Gbps data center and high-performance computing opportunities,” said Michael Lebby, CEO of Lightwave Logic. “We are currently focusing on optimizing our own 50-Gbps Ridge Wave Guide Mach-Zehnder polymer modulator device and packaging to create customer prototypes."

Lightwave Logic is a development stage company moving toward commercialization of next-generation photonic devices using its high-activity and high-stability organic polymers for applications in data communications and telecommunications markets.

"This acquisition provides a solid IP extension for Lightwave Logic and importantly gives us additional freedom of manufacturing for our products,” Lebby said.

BrPhotonics is a provider of advanced high-speed optoelectronic devices and digital microelectronics for small-form-factor integrated transceivers and subsystems.

GLOSSARY
optoelectronics
A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
