Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG) was quite the focus for OTC traders back in May when LWLG blasted out of obscurity and onto everyone’s radar after announcing that it had achieved bandwidth suitable for 25Gbps data rates in an “all-organic polymer ridge waveguide intensity modulator prototype”. In a new release from the company, we have just learned that Lightwave Logic has “achieved outstanding performance of its ridge waveguide Mach-Zehnder modulators ahead of schedule, with bandwidth performance levels that will enable 50Gbps modulation in fiber-optic communications.”
Recent action has seen 18% during the past month in terms of shareholder gains in the name. The situation may be worth watching. LWLG has a history of dramatic rallies. Furthermore, the listing has seen interest climb, with an increase in recent trading volume of 9% over what the stock has registered over the longer term.
Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG) is a development stage Company that is nearing commercialization of a portfolio of organic, nonlinear electro-optical and all-optical polymers (plastic), which have the ability to alter light waves for various optical applications. Initial use of this material is for the conversion of digital information into light pulses at speeds that are orders of magnitude faster than conventional materials, which are based on the nonlinear capabilities of inorganic materials.
In addition to developing materials for integration into customer contemplated designs, the Company is using these advanced materials as the basis for a series of proprietary, advanced integrated optical devices and sub-systems that have broad application in telecommunications, data communications and optical computing for applications in both military and commercial markets.
According to company materials, “Lightwave Logic, Inc. 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. Photonic electro-optical devices convert data from electric signals into optical signals.”

As noted above, we are seeing some renewed excitement in shares of LWLG after the company put out word that it has managed to produce top performance from its ridge waveguide Mach-Zehnder modulators ahead of schedule, with bandwidth performance levels that will enable 50Gbps modulation in fiber-optic communications. The company’s new milestone will reportedly allow users to utilize arrays of 4 x 50Gbps polymer modulators using PAM-4 encoding to access 400Gbps data rate systems.
Dr. Lebby commented, “Our engineering team has again surpassed themselves with polymer designs that have now achieved the goals we set out for ourselves earlier this year: to demonstrate polymer modulators that would enable 50Gbps optical signaling in fiber communications. This development is significant in that for the first time; Lightwave Logic is now in a position to compete aggressively in the 400Gbps data center and high-performance computing markets. Even more, a 50Gbps capable modulator would allow Lightwave to push performance towards 100Gbps to enable data rates of 800Gbps (where only network architects are considering today). The company’s Polymer PIC (P2IC™) platform vastly improves over existing network architectures by providing a low cost, low power scalable alternative that can compete both in price and performance. Today’s announcement is a testament to our world-class engineering team that is increasing our developmental momentum every day.”
Dr. Lebby also noted that “This is a great initial result for Lightwave Logic that lays the groundwork for the necessary engineering work required to optimize the device. We expect a steady stream of improvements to our polymer platform over the next year aided by several key additions that we have made to our engineering teams as well as investments to upgrade our test and characterization equipment. We are currently planning to further strengthen our capability as a company to capitalize on the myriad of opportunities in the field of fiber optic communications.”
The net result at this point is clearly some new juice among traders where this ticker is concerned.
