Lightwave Logic 101 For Dummies,

I wrote this 5 Years ago and is still very relevant I It took me 20 years to experience and about 2 hours to write so I’d appreciate a read. I did not update recently but Towards the end I get redundant but IMO if you read this you will absolutely "Get It". Some of the links are gone but most work. Print it, sit back and read it

Lightwave Logic is finally headed for the Big Leagues and will no doubt become a household name like Intel, Teflon, Gore-Tex etc. They have invented a Cheap Plastic that is compatible with today’s Silicon and can convert Electrons used in today’s computer into the Lightwaves that will dominate the industry and our lives very soon because of the growth in data and Data Centers. The fact is that today’s technology cannot get any smaller because Electrons bump into each other and cause interference and this is Huge Problem that needs a solution that is cheap and can scale.

The world we live in today is much different than the 1960’s and 70’s that I grew up in and anonymous posting has changed how human beings treat each other. So I thought I’d take the time to go back and grab some of my posts, consolidate them and put them in a word document that new comers can print out and read the ol fashion way, On the couch, during the commute or my favorite on the crapper. If one of my friends asks me about Lightwave I will point them to this link.

As many of you know I’ve been studying and supporting this for about 13 years now. At first it was a very risky venture as time went on I’ve probably spent on average about 2-4 hours week every week vetting the science and the players. This link consolidates 1 Months of My Posts with The first post Lightwave Logic for Dummies.” If you print it Looks like it is currently 15 pages.


Lightwave Logic For Dummies I and II

The world is in fact consuming Data at a rate that is not sustainable with current technology and it is about to hit a wall and no one knows what will happen occur when that happens Moore’s law dictates a doubling every few years. A single individual just watching their dog from work is consuming more bandwidth than an Apollo mission to the moon.

For the most part Today’s computers are using silicon with electrons performing calculations then those electrons are converted with modulators/transceivers to light and then sent down fiber optics and at the other end they are converted back to electricity with another transceiver. There are 2 different widths of fiber, the larger core (Big Pipe) is Multi mode 850nm ish the wavelengths are very tight /\/\/\/\/\/\ and then there is single mode pretty much almost a straight line ----------- 1310 nm and 1510nm (key). It is important that you understand because when you look at the technology often it will be multimode however within the past year the industry has chosen Single Mode as the Path Forward.

OK so Electrons can only get so close because they bump into and interfere with each other so they must be kept apart. They also generate heat and massive cooling (just feel the bottom of your PC) is required so computers are moving to Photons because they are fast and can literally pass through each other without interference. The industry needs a stable material that is compatible with Silicon (and the entire CMOS process) to make the conversion on new Hybrid devices and today’s answer are devices made of Indium Phosphide (InP) and Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) while they are available to anyone this material is very expensive to use and does not scale (ability to reduce the size) to move forward. Lightwave has created a Patented (and some of their IP is held in secret) polymer, therefore the only place it is available is from them, this material is sprayed or spin coated on devices then poled (+ and –‘s lined up). Initially Lightave started out just making the Polymer but it took months and months to test a batch and they needed to test 100’s of variations (that is important to understand because there was a steep learning curve that many here took as failure), but it was all just part of the process of learning. Anyhow about 5 years ago Lightwave decide to bite the bullet build a chemical lab and a device lab and create their own feedback loop.

So there were steps throughout the evolution here, initially it was in a lab in Newport, then one of the founders had a medical problem Bim and Marcelli struggled to keep this a float. Bim was a Dupont guy so he brought this to the attention of his Dupont buddies, they vetted it, basically recreated the process/knowledge that was lost with the founders memory. Anyway Basically A former Vice President of Dupont Polymer (Ross Fasick) and Founder of Dupont thin films Eaton tapped their connections in the chemical world, after a few years they reached out the pharmaceutical industry to help clean up the dirty chromophore. So that is Polymer side basically a titan of the Polymer industry had blessed this. I think it was about this time that Fred Leonberger (Godfather/inventor of today’s InP Modulator technology) started looking at this technology he hung around and blessed it. Now The fiber side, The former V.P. of Corning (the worlds largest fiber optic company) Joe Miller Joined another blessing. Oh also the entire time they had Terry Turpin NSA computer guru lending his support. I forget exactly when but we also had Smith of Taser on the board, he brought on Marcelli, then Marcelli moved to the Operating side and Admiral Zelibor took over Jim and Tom did the lab moves Z called for a device to prove that it worked. (When he came one I asked Admiral Z what his greatest accomplishment to date was, I asked he didn’t volunteer it, but he said a call from the Pentagon on 9/11 to take command of a 100 vessel carrier group to the middle east operation enduring freedom was born) Somewhere along the line Michael Lebby was doing a multi million dollar study of the Path Forward for the entire industry, now he has taken over the CEO slot and Just as important is Fred Leonberger (inventor of today’s incumbent technology) after years of guiding them he has decided to move to the Board of Directors and head up the Operations committee. Those 2 moves are huge obviously they have cracked the nut.

Initially when Lebby came on the board he headed up the operating committee and said we are doing 1 Gig, 10 Gig then the 25 Gig Single Mode Modulator to show the industry how we can modify our polymers to perform and scale. As of Last week we Just checked that Box. The Material WORKS.

Elevator Pitch - - - A Cheap Patented Plastic made in a test tube and dropped or sprayed on Silicon that is compatible with the entire CMOS process, will be used to convert Data to Light Waves using minute amounts of electricity and does not require cooling (a very green technology) . Similar to and Intel inside TM, triples the speed using half the power.

Oh the data center thing, data centers are getting bigger and bigger buying up all the real-estate around and they need something that can move the data around in a single mode form (distances are too far for multi mode). That is the initial target market for Lightwaves entrance into the market.

The uses for this technology are far too numerous to note but some are obvious like Military, Medical, Data Communications, Telecommunications, Gaming and on and on Literally 10’s if not hundreds of Billions of dollars may very well rely on this goo that will be inside doing the work but for now just focus the 2km data center market at 1 Dollar per Gig.


(Takes a while to download)

As Z says Leonberger, Lebby and Miller can wax eloquently for hours talking about this, they are highly respected and can command an audience with anyone in the industry.

Fortune 500’s and Academia have tried, so I’m sure there is much doubt in the industry as to how such a small company could do this, but look at the talent, over the years I’ve watched, listened, questioned from every possible logical angle and I’m convinced that they did it.

I have no doubt that we will see a partnership soon or will simply be bought out. The industry needs a solution and it needs it soon. A Billion or two (do I here 5?) is peanuts for some of these companies.

OH as for how they fund operations the was an initial PP years ago (that I missed out on) and many others along the way, then LPC has been brought in (many do not understand it and because of that they are scared of it) they basically act as a middleman Lightwave sells them shares at a discount and they sell them on the market, there is a built in profit for them. As soon as Lightwave has a cash cow partner that will be close that out currently they own about 5 Per Cent and will do everything in their power to see maximum return on that core position, many do not quite Get That. Lightwave always keeps about 6 months of cash on hand Marcelli watches the money very close and is great at that, they always keep just enough on hand so they can concentrate on the actual business.

OK Now Lightwave HAS JUST Turned a New Page, I think we will begin to See Lebby, Leonberger and Possibly Miller tap someone on the shoulder to form something bigger. Let’s see, oh and yes some criticize me for being too positive and forward thinking, so I apologize also to them.


X’s LWLG for Dummies Step II

These are opinions, MY opinions and are not based on anything other than MY intuitions/interpretations of things that I read or hear many of you talking about. Remember though that in the stock market perception can become reality; but “true” science is in fact science, not opinions. I am not here to purposely mislead anyone, just trying to present how I see this. Often times I scratch my head wondering why many investors that have bet on this like to publicly post their doubts without researching them, like hey I can argue this and create doubt, this is fun, or honestly sometimes I wonder if Bipolar disease is more rampant that I thought.

I do tend to oversimplify but I guess but that is the only way I can understand it.

Packaging,- - > JUST ACCOMPLISHED 3/26/2018 F’in HUGE <- - - - So packaging apparently means different things to different people, to me it was always about the physical box that the magic would sit inside of and with the old legacy technology it required a gold Kovar box for protection, Lightwave all along thought that they could place theirs inside of plastic box because it did not require protection from the elements. I did however notice that the testing was performed in a nitrogen environment by because it is an “industry standard”.

Lebby and PICS - IMO I think they will be super teeny tiny things and they will most likely be sealed in plastic. I think that the devices they are working on are small as in this > - <.

Remember they said they “learned things along the way”? This is Just My Opinion.

Fiber entering the device. Remember last year when Lebby was talking about face plate density was an issue with the connectors taking up space, and now discussions are on fiber entering through the face plate and being attached directly to the device, sounds like they are killing two birds with one stone, because along with physical limitations there is the signal loss that occurs with every connection.

How can they attach it? Photons will bounce off of an angle cut so today’s practice is to cleave (cut at a 90 degree angle) and line it up. I think that tapering, fusing, or a concave end and glue acceptor kind of thing might work. They’ll figure it out, after all it is just a piece of glass getting connected, (I helped the fiber chick splice mine and while I’m sure it was multi-mode (not single mode) with a rather crude microscope, cleave it, line it up and lock it down). But multi fiber (Big Pipe Large diameter fiber optics) is much easier to connect hence why the industry tried that route first.

You know how you hear things and your antennae/awareness is tweaked, you get the true meaning of what they are saying? Following are a couple examples.

Mario Paniccia while at Intel once stated while commenting on how Big Pipe and Little Pipe (multi-mode and single mode technology) is just about impossible to connect, at the time Intel went the Big pipe (Multi Mode) route because it was easy he stated that ultimately the “market will decide” I knew when I heard that a light went off, he knew they on the wrong path I started googling the crap out of Single mode technology trying to understand it.

Just as the with Lebby last year IMO while scratching his head “how will the face plate density thing get solved”, yeah right, he knew, he wanted the audience to “get it”, seed planted, industry moves forward.

OK so now we have Lebby who studied the entire market guiding and presenting for us, Yo Dudes, what a uniquely qualified individual we now have to lead a New technology, Light Replacing Electricity, Plastic Replacing OR COMPLEMENTING Indium Phosphide (InP), Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) and Silicon. The groundwork here has been laid, the production is consistent, the stability has been tested, both labs are in place, Marcelli knows how to keep them running. Leonberger for darn sure is one of the best that has done this before AND is doing it again. Lebby has the contacts and the ability to present this technology and convince some very talented individuals to join forces.

This industry is heating up, $1.20 I think is dirt cheap. My short term price goal is a $1.25 base (and I’m talking Next week), my one day la,la, la goal is a price increase of about 82 Cents in a single day, OK a buck, but the sky truly is the limit. Like I said though, we will get taken out, there will come a day when it will all be over, funds and/or shares will transfer and we will all be on our way thinking that we were the geniuses here. Many shoulda, woulda, couldas will be kicking themselves but Hey, I Most Absolutely Could Be Wrong, it Ain’t over til it’s over and Mark My Word, Games Will Be Played to make the Doubters Doubt.

Yep, This year will be the year that we come out on the field, Lebby will be shouting this from the mountain top. Do I think 5 Bucks is Possible by December 31st? YUP, and honestly I think I would be disappointed with that number.

Lebby has over 200 patents in this field “He headed the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA), the premier networking trade association for business and scientific professionals in the optical space based in Washington, DC. Dr. Lebby has testified on behalf of the optoelectronics industry on Capitol Hill and brought the industry together on key issues. In 2015, - - - > Dr. Lebby completed a set of industry roadmaps for integrated photonics technologies over the next decade as part of the Federally funded IMI (Institute of Manufacturing Innovation) competition. These roadmaps layout industry needs for 400Gbps, 800Gbps and beyond. < -----“

So Yes Todays Electrons cannot get any closer together, they generate heat which costs money to cool (just feel your phone or your laptop) Light is the future, after studying the entire industry for many years Michael Lebby joins Lightwave Logic and then assumes the CEO position. Fred Leonberger after working in the background as an “advisor” for years and years decides to become a director at the company. Something BIG has happened at Lightwave logic and while they allude to 2 years I’m leaning towards a major breakthrough 8-10 months ago.

A Cheap Plastic that the uses the electrons in today’s devices to control the photons for tomorrow’s devices with a Proprietary Polymer that is spin coated on devices, heated, poled, cooled down then rock n roll. Light is the fastest thing in the universe and does not generate heat; think of an electron transferring to a photon like Enterprise in Star Trek when it switches to warp drive. Light is the fastest thing in the universe.

80% of the investors here “get it, and IMO 5 Bucks should not be very far off guys.

A Patented/Proprietary Plastic that can Control Light just as Transistors control Electrons on Silicon, Compatible with today’s materials for the Hybrid devices of Tomorrow and at a fraction of the cost.

As important is that it is also compatible with the CMOS process, you see in the past all attempts to create a polymer failed because of the heat generated during production or could not hold up to the pounding from the laser. From the beginning Lightwave Logic approached this from the opposite direction and took Stable Plastics and Chemically Modified them to make to create a new EO active Polymer.

A Super-Fast Stable EO Active Polymer when excited by Electrons used in today's computers controls Lightwaves that will be used in tomorrow’s devices, Get It?

A Proprietary Plastic that can Control Light just as Transistors control Electrons on Silicon, Compatible with today’s materials for the Hybrid devices of Tomorrow and at a fraction of the cost.

“The more successful they are the luckier they’ll say we were.”

Games will be played my friends it was inevitable.

This has been a long road and while it is not 100 percent ready to put a device in the customers hand Fred Leonberger is Very, Very Confident. He remained in the background as a consultant for years and years and just joined the board and took over the operations committee. At the shareholders meeting I thanked him for moving to the front and supporting this. He looked me in the eye and said something to the effect of this is going to take off. Fred is not a guy that makes those kinds of statements unfounded.

A stable Cheap, Fast Molecule Created in a test tube and devices designed by the man credited with designing today’s technology and introduced by someone that has studied and studied the industry.

I’ve followed this and supported this science for 13 years now, from the days of the garage (that they would open slightly to vent the lab) in an industrial park to now attracting the who’s who of the industry and I’ve never been more encouraged about the science, In my opinion this is about to get very interesting.

Super-Fast Plastic that Controls Photons the Same way that Silicon Controls Electrons. Many are too young to remember, but It will Revolutionize Communications and Computing the same way that Transistors Did When it Replaced the Vacuum Tube or Fiber Optics Replaced Copper or the Cell Phone replaced the old corded phone. The Material is Proprietary and uses Much Less Electricity than anything else out there so it is a Very “Green” Technology it also makes Economic sense. It is Compatible With all materials Currently used in Devices so Hybrid Devices will Be a Piece of Cake. It is Also Compatible with The CMOS process and Does not Require Expensive Packaging which Will allow for immediate acceptance into the market.

The World is Consuming Data at a Rate that is not Sustainable with Today’s Technology’s Period.

If a product can solve a problem it will succeed and the World does In fact have a Hugh Problem, Just as Electricity replaced Whale Oil for lighting the world, The Rubber Tire Replaced the Wooden Wheel, the Steam engine replaced the Horse, Light Must Replace Electricity and Folks this material has as many uses as Gore-Tex.

The Company has ZERO Debt and always keeps 6 months of cash on hand.

I started out with a small position and studied this when I had time 2-4 hours a week for 13 years now, as I began to understand more I’d buy a little more, as they reduced the risk I increased my investment. I have literally watched as 100’s started out as skeptics and then once they researched it became a supporter.

Opportunities with this kind of potential timed to hit the market as precisely the correct time only come along one or twice in a lifetime. Do Your Homework, If it makes sense (and it will) then it is probably true, if one is still skeptical or a worrier IMO just buy a small amount through one of the internet brokerage firms it only costs like 5 bucks a trade, but be forewarned that games will be played folks, many Fortune 500s and University’s that do not have access to this material as well as skeptics in the market will play games. The middle of next month Michael Lebby will introduce This Technology to the World then it will work its way up in value. Expect a partnership announcement soon (1 to 3 months). Honestly there is too much money in the fortune 100 world for them not to just trade us dollars for our shares, Buyout Coming? IMO, Yes.

For many years Fortune 500 companies tried to produce an organic polymer to control light they created many that would work in the lab but ultimately they all failed, the Achilles Heel was always thermal stability. Lightwave cracked that nut, check that box.

Looking forward to a very exciting year, I fully expect at least 2 partnerships this year, meanwhile the market will do what the market will do.

Let me try and break this device thing down. OK so a waveguide is basically just a conduit for the Lightwaves to pass through, (a pipe if you would) if you keep the width exactly the same the single mode lightwave will not get distorted. (Obviously the Lightwave wonks don't need to read it)

Unlike anything out there, Lightwaves Waveguide, the active ingredient (Perkinamine) and the packaging (just completed) will all be plastic, cheap High Temperature, Stable Plastic (variations of their patented Perkinamine) that operates in a fempto second (a femtosecond is to a second as a second is to about 31.71 million years) Super-Fast with Very Low Voltage, Green.

As information the company has zero debt
