Lightwave Logic CEO To Present To PIC Conference


Michael Lebby will present latest results of polymer PICs that can scale using 50Gbps modulators for 400Gbps applications

Michael Lebby, CEO of Lightwave Logic, a technology company focused on the development of next generation photonic devices and polymer materials, will present to the 3rd Annual Photonic Integration Conference at the High Technology Campus, Eindhoven, the Netherlands talk on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

Lebby's invited talk will focus on the growth of integrated photonics in datacentres, telecom networks and non-communications applications. It ill highlight the tremendous market opportunity that lies ahead for both new polymer-based PIC technologies, as well as incumbent technologies such as InP, and platforms such as silicon photonics.

Lebby will discuss Lightwave Logic's latest results in polymer based PIC technology, and specifically, Lightwave's advancement of its Mach-Zehnder ridge waveguide modulator designs for 25Gbps and 50Gbps using Polymer PIC platform (P2IC) technology.

The 50Gbs ridge waveguide is the company's initial foray into datacom and telecom and cloud computing markets. However, future plans will incorporate P2IC™polymers in ultra-miniaturized silicon organic hybrid devices.

"Our company has again peaked interest from the fibrr communications eco-system community, and is being asked to present technical results on our polymer based PIC technology platform. We believe that polymer platform is the solution that can address cost-effective performance scaling of short haul fibre-based communication systems as data rates approach 400Gbps and beyond, " said Lebby.

"This conference brings together key stakeholders who are both developing and looking for technology platforms that solve the primary problem that has hampered the ability of the fibre communications eco-system to profitably keep pace with the almost limitless proliferation of data.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
