Lightwave Logic champions polymer-based modulators

Electro-optic polymers could help other optical materials become more successful, according to Lightwave Logic, a development stage company.

Lightwave Logic has developed a high-performance Mach-Zehnder polymer modulator suitable for 50Gb/s modulation, the company announced at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg Sweden. This breakthrough will enable arrays of 4 x 50G polymer modulators, which can be combined with PAM-4 encoding to build 400Gb/s data centre optics.
