People from all over the world will be present at the 3rd Annual Photonic Integration Conference which will take place at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. One of the keynotes will be by Lightwave Logic CEO Dr. Michael Lebby. His main message: “Photonic Integrated Circuits are Enabling Innovative Products.”

Dr. Lebby will provide an overview of the data communications environment and the latest results of polymer PICs that can scale using 50Gbps modulators for 400Gbps applications. His company, Lightwave Logic, is a technology company focused on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non-Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high-speed fiber-optic data communications and telecommunications.

The 3rd Annual Photonic Integration Conference is a technical conference that focuses only on PIC based technologies and attracts speakers and companies from all over the world and is attended by senior stakeholders in the integrated photonics value-chain.

Dr. Lebby’s invited talk is based on a previously published abstract is entitled, “PICs are Enabling Innovative Products.” The talk will focus on the explosive growth of integrated photonics both in data centers, telecom networks as well as non-communications applications and will highlight the tremendous market opportunity that lies ahead for both new polymer-based PIC technologies, as well as incumbent technologies such as Indium Phosphide (InP), and platforms such as Silicon Photonics.

Dr. 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 company’s P2IC™polymers system is – according to Lightwave Logic – inherently scalable, electrically efficient and offers an open chemistry development platform that can generate new materials to increase performance without significant incremental cost. 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.

Dr. Lebby looks forward to his talk in Eindhoven:

“Our company has again peaked interest from the fiber 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 fiber-based communication systems as data rates approach 400Gbps and beyond. 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 fiber communications eco-system to profitably keep pace with the almost limitless proliferation of data. Our technical team is making terrific progress which is compounding a growing industry awareness and anticipation of a much-needed next-generation technology to replace legacy systems.”

Earlier this year, Lebby was responsible for organizing the Photonics Roadmap Forum in Den Bosch. On that occasion, we had a talk with him.
