Lightwave Logic To Promote Polymer PICs At The World Technology Mapping Forum In Europe

News

CEO Michael Lebby to discuss global market trends in fibre optic communication for datacentres, high-performance computing, and telecommunications as input to build the 1st global Integrated Photonics System Roadmap.

Lightwave Logic has announced that their CEO Dr. Michael Lebby, will be promoting polymer PICs at the World Technology Mapping Forum in the Netherlands on 14th June 2017.

The forum, which has attracted photonic industry and trade association participants globally, is being held to create the world's first International Photonic Systems Roadmap. Michael Lebby will also participate in the fibre communications technical working group and focus his contributions towards the evolution of photonic PIC technologies with respect to product volumes, specifications, cost, performance, power, and functionality over the next decade.

When completed and finalised, the first International Photonic Systems Roadmap is expected to draw attention to key technology platforms and key technical metrics that will be the main vehicles for photonic PICs over the next decade. Today, the main incumbent technology is Indium Phosphide (InP), with new entrants such as Silicon Photonics (SiP), Dielectric Photonics (DP), and more recently Lightwave Logic's Polymer Photonics (PP) technology platform. The roadmap is expected to review state-of-the-art in photonic platform testing, packaging, assembly, design, substrates and PIC platforms.

Lebby has been involved in a number of photonic roadmaps over the past 2 decades and contributed heavily to Optoelectronic Industry Development Association's (OIDA) first set of photonic roadmaps in the early 1990's. He then assisted International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative ( iNEMI ) in their photonics roadmap in the late 1990s, and followed this work with integrated photonics roadmaps looking out 10 years while heading OIDA in the late 2000s. He was recently the driver of University of Southern California's (USC) integrated photonics roadmap initiative as part of the integrated photonics competition on Manufacturing Institutes funded by Federal Government in 2015.

Dr. Lebby commented, "Given the incredible technology advancement that the Lightwave Logic team has made over the past few years, it is now time for the world to recognize that polymer photonics--in particular polymer integrated photonics (Polymer PICs) are a critical component to the photonics roadmap going forward. This will be especially true for Polymer PICs that enable 100 Gbps, 400 Gbps performance and beyond."



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.
