Lightwave Logic's Chief Optical/Electrical Engineer Authors White Paper Proving Organic Nonlinear Electro-Optic Polymers Have Potential to Significantly Improve Performance of Spatial Light Modulators

White Paper Now Available in the Resources Section of the Lightwave Logic Website

NEWARK, Del., Sept. 17, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — �Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTC: LWLG), a technology company focused on the development of a Next Generation Non Linear Optical Polymer Materials Platform for applications in high speed fiber-optic data communications and optical computing, announced today that it has made available a White Paper on spatial light modulators (SLMs) written by Charles Greenlee, the Company's Chief Optical/Electrical Engineer.  The paper proves organic nonlinear electro-optic (EO) polymers have potential to significantly improve performance of spatial light modulators.

Spatial light modulators are advanced optical processors used in optical computing applications such as object identification and smart weaponry.  The paper demonstrates a working spatial light modulator using an organic nonlinear electro-optical polymer material. Current generation SLMs are based on liquid crystal technology that can only process approximately 60 frames per second.  This slow processing speed has hampered the utility of these devices because real-world applications require the ability to process significantly more optical data.

Charles Greenlee commented, "The objective of this project was to prove that organic nonlinear EO polymers can be used to build spatial light modulators that will vastly outperform current liquid crystal devices.

"I am extremely excited to be working with Perkinamine based materials.  Unlike the polymer used in the research project, Perkinamine based materials have previously demonstrated excellent thermal stability and high electro-optical effects needed to operate at extremely low voltages. They also possess other unique electro-optical characteristics that make them particularly well suited for this kind of application."

Tom Zelibor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave stated, "We have made steady progress to improve our ability to consistently reproduce our materials while we complete the outfitting of our new testing and design facility.  This will open the way for Chuck to get our materials into working devices.  His vast experience with spatial modulators will complement our previously announced external design effort currently in process with Boulder Nonlinear Systems."
