Followed LWLG for 20 years.
They have a Polymer that when applied to Silicon Photonics Triples the Speed and CUTS POWER Requirements for the Modulators in DATA CENTERS IN HALF. I'm sure everyone is aware that Power used by data canters requires carbon not only to operate but to Cool The Heat Produced. One day this name will be as common as Teflon, Intel inside and will even b on the Transistor. Do your homework it makes sense from a green standpoint, and it reduces the cost of building and operating a data center.
Check it out, I've been following this for 20 year, This company finally made the Nasdaq.
Successful inventors take two unrelated products and combine them to solve a problem then patent it and this is exactly what Lightwave Logic has done, but wait because it solves far more than a few problems.
It will be Ubiquitous, Period Full Stop, We are Golden.
Think about life today and what is one of the biggest problems facing society? Answer: the need for faster computing/communications and the need to reduce energy. Look around the world we live in and one of the most widely used products is Plastic. Lightwave logic solves that problem by marrying Electo Optic Polymer (Plastic) by combining it with Silicon (used in computers) and InP (which is used to produce the laser in Fiber optic Communications). Lightwave has done just that, it Triples the Speed inside the computers, uses Half the Power AND it removes the need for a Driver. To date what the industry did to solve this problem was to put another power hungry modulator next to the other but after putting 8 of those together it has pretty much hit the wall because the next step is 16. Plus each modulator takes up room and Lightwave modulators are a fraction the size of today’s modulators.
Now we’ve all known that this will have many uses and 2 of the latest just coming into focus within the past few months are:
1. Lidar which is used in both the military and for driverless cars.
2. Light used in the medical field, not only can this be used to speed up solving what is wrong with somebody it can also be used to modify a Light beam to diagnose various diseases and correct them. Someone that I’m close to uses lasers in the pet world to heal wounds.
Anyone that doesn’t think a problem solving so many issues and set to be used in the Automotive, Military, Medical, Communications and Computing and Green frontier market is not going to explode is living in the past.
Best Part about this is the plastic is proprietary meaning it is only available from one place, Lightwave Logic. Furthermore, even when a competitor creates an Elector Optic Polymer material similar to Lightwaves if they put it in a device they run into Squarely into Lightwaves Device Patents.
Who did this, honestly there were many but let me hit this at a high level. Fred Leonberger who is credited with todays modulator technology, Joe Miller Credited with saving Corning the world's largest manufacture of Fiber Optics, Admiral Zelibor who led the carrier group on 9/11 and is now an advisor to space force, NSA cats, before he passed away Ross Fasick Senior Executive VP - Polymers at Dupont all are beyond reproach they are here for a legacy not a paycheck. As information Lightwave has a Polymer (Ross Fasick) that Modulates Light (Fred Leonberger) the sigal travels down Fiber Optics (Joe Miller). Then we have The CEO Michael Lebby (who was inducted into the Elected to National Academy of Inventors) submitting Lightwaves patents and communicating with the industry oh remember that he produced the first International Photonic Systems Roadmap (looking at the needs of the industry), after studying the entire industry, he joined Lighwave logic to submit patents, go figure.
My friends we truly are on the gold.
Wait for the Green Crypto crowd to get ahold of this (If that’s not an oxymoron I don’t know what is).
Lightwaves material holds the world record, put that in your pipe and smoke it.

There has been a lot of recent news and stir over Climate change and with an international CO2 limit treaty looming in Paris in December this year, the news should explode. In fact it has already started. My interest is finding stocks that have cutting edge, outside of the box technology that has gotten little press that could help solve the problem in a huge way.
Here is some recent news showing the magnitude of the problem
This board is being revived today, please join us!!!
And thanks for the link below, great site I had not seen before. I am more of a high tech (bio-chemical engineer) reader, of patents and science journals so I sometimes miss great sites like the one you suggested. I used to read them 30-40 years ago before I went back to get my degrees and started doing research..But they were not online back then, had to hang out in an old school library.
Awesome link and a great one to check daily for updates, thanks for sharing and enjoy that home grown garden food.
Resilience: A New Conservation Strategy for a Warming World
by Jim Robbins, originally published by Yale Environment 360 | Jul 28, 2015
The board title has been updated and the board is coming back to life, the ice age has ended here, and things are warming back up LOL
With all the weather news and the Paris Climate change treaty in Paris in December this year and the Catholic pope changing sides on the political arena I think it is time to get this board cooking (LOL) weather or not it is a favorite dinner table topic LOL.
As the topic will become a huge money maker for many stocks now like MVTG

NOTE: Please review the slideshow; unbelieveable!
Both companies are affected by global warming and it's effect on MVTG and IFUS.
What is the connection between MVTG and IFUS products to Climate Change and global warming?
Global warming CO2 emissions,droughts,and other side effects and articles listed below
I am also in IFUS and MVTG because this last 6 months both companies have solutions to problems that will make them great stock plays.
Feast or famine, Colorado flood more proof of Climate change wild swings in the weather, and economic impacts. That is why I am invested in MVTG and IFUS, both forward thinking problem solvers working on solutions to these problems.
Last week's downpour, the heaviest to hit the region in four decades, experts said, dumped up to 21 inches of rain in parts of Boulder city, northwest of Denver, nearly double the area's average annual rainfall.
The overall flood zone ultimately grew to encompass 17 Colorado counties, including the state's biggest urban centers, across a normally semi-arid region about the size of Delaware.
HERE is a video on NBC news of more bad news for ranchers
Why is that bad news, good for IFUS?
"DROUGHT FOR RANCHERS AND CATTLE WILL CAUSE EXTREME increases in pps at IFUS"
DROUGHT FOR RANCHERS AND CATTLE WILL CAUSE EXTREME increases in pps at IFUS
I hear the atmosphere at IFUS is already warming up fast?
WHEN IFUS explodes to a dime I will slap the ask here with record volume.
Things warming up at IFUS
DROUGHTS affecting other countries too
Companies like IFUS have potential for being solution to global problems.

Things are heating up here to, LOL.
Nice info,new to board not new to GLOBAL WARMING
And here is a good step by step read about each part of the story in that video
In order to understand global warming and climate change, one must also understand global dimming!!! This is a must watch PBS/BCC broadcast of the story of the discovery of "Global Dimming" and its impact on CO2 global warming climate models.
Extreme heat waves to quadruple by 2040, study says
John Roach, NBC News
Aug. 14, 2013 at 6:59 PM ET
The type of heat waves that wilt crops, torch forests — and kill people — are expected to become more frequent and severe over the next 30 years regardless of whether humans curb emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, according to a new study.
These are heat waves akin to those that baked many regions of the U.S. in 2012 and devastated crops in Russia in 2010. Such bouts of extreme heat are so-called "three-sigma events," meaning they are three standard deviations warmer than the normal climate of a specific region for weeks in a row. In the Russia event, for example, July temperatures in Moscow were about 12 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal.
Since the 1950s, the frequency of these events has "strongly increased and right now they cover about 5 percent of the global land area," Dim Coumou, a climate scientist with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, told NBC News. The findings are published Thursday in the journal Environmental Research Letters.
He and colleagues used a suite of 29 models that they say accurately represent the historic, observed trend, giving them confidence the models' ability to project the trend into the future.
"If we look at the near-term, up to 2040, we see that this increase will continue and that by 2040 we will see about 20 percent of the land area affected, so about another fourfold increase compared to today," Coumou said.
If levels of carbon dioxide continue to increase in the atmosphere as they are today, the researchers find heat extremes might cover 85 percent of the planet's land area by 2100.
What's more, even hotter — so called five-sigma events, which are virtually non-existent today — would affect 60 percent of the global land area, according to the research.
"Possibly even a more important message from this study is that a further increase during the second half of the 21st century can be stopped if we reduce CO2 emissions fairly soon," Coumou said.
However, the impact of such reductions will not be felt for several decades given an inherent time lag in the climate system "and this is, of course, something that we have to deal with," he said.
Dealing may mean breeding crops that are more resilient to heat and drought, for example, and preparing the healthcare system to handle an increase in heat-stressed patients.
The findings in and of themselves contain "nothing especially new," Martin Hoerling, a research meteorologist who studies climate variability at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., said in an email to NBC News.
He noted other published studies have reached a similar conclusion — "a warming climate increases the frequency of temperature exceeding a high threshold."
What troubles Hoerling, who was not involved with the new study, is that it fails to consider the possibility that temperature variability will decrease in a warming world, as indicated by a recent study in Nature. If so, temperatures may not exceed a high threshold as often as projected by the new study.
"Of course, if temperature variability increases, then the frequency of exceeding a high threshold increases," he added.
Similarly, Martin Tingley, a climate scientist at Pennsylvania State University whose own research indicates recent summer heat waves are unprecedented, noted that the new paper is based on a short reference interval — 1951 to 1980, as was done in a 2012 paper by former NASA climate scientist James Hansen.
"It is quite a dangerous proposition" as discussed in commentary on the Hansen paper, Tingley told NBC News. "Because what happens is using a short reference interval, you underestimate the variance within that interval and artificially inflate them outside of that baseline. So it actually gives us more extreme behavior as you extrapolate."
Coumou said he is confident in the ability of the suite of models used in the new research to portray historic, observed temperature trends and thus what they say about the likelihood of increased frequency and severity of extreme heat in the coming decades.
"We know that such events can have strong impacts on society as well as ecosystems," he said. "Our study shows that in the near-term such events will become more regular, but it doesn't mean that we cannot adapt."
