Lightwave Logic CEO To Speak About Polymer PICs At ECOC
Polymer PIC platform can cost-effectively scale to 400Gbps and beyond, says Lebby
Lightwave Logic, a developer of photonic devices and non-linear optical polymer materials, has announced that CEO Michael Lebby will speak at the ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communications) in September.
The invited talk 'Polymer PICs as a platform for 100G and 400G photonics and an update on photonic roadmaps for integrated photonics' will take place in the Market Focus sessions on Photonic Integration and Digital Silicon Photonics on Wednesday, 20th Sep, 14:25 - 14:55, at ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communications) in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Lebby will discuss new opportunities for polymer based high-speed modulators that are expected to scale in cost performance using Mach-Zehnder polymer modulators to enable full standardised 100Gbps datacentre and high-performance computing applications using Lightwave Logic's polymer PIC (P2IC) platform currently targeting 400Gbps and beyond. He will also provide an overview of the latest in photonics roadmaps that resulted from the IPSR - International Photonics Systems Roadmap process that occurred in The Netherlands on June 14, 2017.
"The fibre communications eco-system is beginning to recognise that our polymer based PIC technology can solve the juggernaut that has prevented legacy systems from cost-effectively increasing performance. We expect more visibility and exposure will entice potential stakeholders," said Lebby. "I also intend to update the exciting technical progress Lightwave Logic has achieved this year. We are honoured to be able to promote a polymer PIC platform that can cost-effectively scale not only at 100Gbps to 400Gbps, and beyond."
