NEWARK, Del., Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a technology company focused on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non-Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high speed fiber-optic data communications and optical computing, announced today it has received the first purchase order for its advanced organic nonlinear electro-optic (EO) polymer from Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) of Boulder, Colorado in connection with the development of a next generation LADAR system.
LADAR is an acronym for Laser Advanced Detection And Ranging. It is a radar system that utilizes a pulse laser to calculate the distance to a target, but is also capable of rendering a 3-D image.
Tom Zelibor, Chairman and CEO of Lightwave Logic stated, "Even though this first-ever commercial order for our EO polymer is small, we are extremely pleased that we received it from our long-time partner BNS for use in this important military and commercial application. The material we delivered is the product and result of the new synthesis process we recently announced.
"We anticipate that there will be demand for additional material as the BNS project moves into any follow-on phases of development and ultimately, if successful, we would supply the material for the commercial application.
"The use of nonlinear EO polymers for advanced beam control in LADAR has the potential to bring about new tracking and imaging capabilities. This could be beneficial to commercial 3D mapping as well as remote sensing for agricultural and meteorological information gathering or for search and rescue."
