Nonlinear Optical Materials to Address Power Costs of Global Data Centers

A Bloomberg News Service story dated 13 December 2011 has described the vast power costs required for cooling data centers across the world. According to Lightwave Logic, recent developments in its organic nonlinear optical material technology are capable of drastically decreasing the power usage of computing, datacom and telecom operations.

Lightwave Logic’s Chief Executive Officer, Jim Marcelli stated that the recent advancements achieved in the company’s organic nonlinear optical material platform called Perkinamine is capable of addressing the issue discussed in the Bloomberg story.

Marcelli further said that since firms such as Google and Facebook keep adding more servers to transfer their virtually limitless data supply, they are in huge power demand to run their equipment and maintain their environment cool. To snatch this significant business opportunity, the company has started producing low-voltage, high-performance devices at low cost, he added.

The Chief Technology Officer at Lightwave Logic, Dr. Louis Glasgow stated that Perkinamine Indigo, the company’s latest optical material, has exhibited a huge electro-optical effect having r33 numbers more than 250 pm/V. The optical material also demonstrates superior thermal stability to produce competitive optical equipment that will trigger the transition to the organic nonlinear polymer technology, he said.

The Optical Computing Guru at Lightwave Logic, Terry Turpin stated that low-power, affordable stable organic polymer-based modulators having 250 pm/V of electro-optical effect will also modify the telecom landscape. These modulators will drastically increase the capacity of the current optical fibers by enabling the networks of high-density wavelength-division multiplexing through advanced modulation types. They are capable of substantially decreasing the needed drive voltage, which in turn significantly reduces expenditures in the cost-conscious fields, he added. In addition, the optical material can be added straightway into the CMOS ICs, paving the way for delivering optical communications between chips, he concluded.
