NEWARK, Del. -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: 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 the USPTO will issue US Patent No. 7,919,619 on April 5, 2011 for Heterocyclical Chromophore Architectures directed to Perkinamine chromophores, the foundation of Lightwave's unique electro-optic materials platform. Additionally, the company has been issued US Patent No. 7,894,695 covering its Tricyclic Spacer System for Non-Linear Optical devices.

A chromophore is an advanced type of dye that imparts electro-optical properties to a polymer. Perkinamine chromophores are a highly potent class of compounds which impart unparalleled thermal and optical stability to a resulting polymer matrix.

A tricyclic spacer system prevents aggregation of individual chromophores and enables long term stability of the material.

Jim Marcelli, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic said, "We are very pleased to finally obtain these 2 key patents that protect the core of our revolutionary electro-optical materials platform with utility across many different electro-optical devices and systems like optical buses for micro-processor chips and Optical Processing Units that include spatial light modulators, as well as telecom modulators, optical limiters, and optical computers."
