(OTCQB: LWLG), a technology platform company leveraging its proprietary electro-optic polymers to transmit data at higher speeds with less power, today announced that Chief Executive Officer Dr. Michael Lebby will present a virtual keynote address at the SPIE Photonics Europe 2020 Digital Forum, one of the largest photonics conferences in Europe, which is taking place from April 6-10, 2020.
SPIE Photonics Europe Digital Forum
Keynote Title: Naturally Fast and Low Power Electro-Optic Polymer Optical Devices are Ideally Positioned for the Next-Generation Internet Photonics Roadmap
Speaker: Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer
Date: April 7, 2020
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. Central European time

"We are excited to share our story as a part of this industry-leading online conference, taking a closer look of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused on internet infrastructure," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "For example, CNN recently reported that Netflix and YouTube reduced video streaming quality in Europe for at least the next month to prevent the internet from collapsing under the strain of unprecedented usage due to home quarantines driven by the coronavirus pandemic. These are precisely the types of traffic jam scenarios that Lightwave's technology is designed to address, where our polymer materials can use less power and increase data throughput in existing network infrastructure."
"I would also like to take the opportunity to provide an update on Lightwave Logic and the current COVID-19 situation. We have continued to drive the business forward while following all state, local and CDC protocols, while keeping the safety of our employees and partners a top priority," concluded Lebby.
