Lightwave Logic Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent for Innovative Thiopene-based EO Polymers with Improved Performance
Company Further Strengthens IP Portfolio and Commercial Opportunities with Patent Issuance for Innovative Chromophore Design Using Novel Thiopene Bridge, Increasing Overall EO Polymer Performance.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced the issuance of a U.S. patent for an advanced chemical structural design that enhances the overall performance of non-linear organic optical chromophores using a novel thiophene bridge.
The patent – entitled "Nonlinear Optical Chromophores, Nonlinear Optical Materials Containing the Same, and Uses Thereof in Optical Devices" (Patent No. US 11,661,428) – details an innovative organic chromophore design using a novel 'thiophene bridge' to significantly improve material performance in a production environment. This is accomplished by designing thiophene-containing bridging groups that are positioned between the electron-donating and electron-accepting ends of the chromophore. These designs provide nonlinear optical chromophores with significantly improved optical properties and improved stability.
Dr. Michael Lebby, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic, commented: "I am pleased to announce the issuance of this exciting new patent, based on a novel thiophene bridge design, which we expect will help us progress our commercial discussions with other potential customers. The fortification of our patent portfolio, with innovative new patents such as this, will be critical as we progress our commercialization journey – all with the goal of crating sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders."
