Michael Lebby, Chair in Optoelectronics at Glyndŵr University, Board Director at Lightwave Logic Inc
Presently, Michael Lebby is driving new frontiers in the integrated photonics field as Board Director for Lightwave Logic, an integrated polymer photonics company in Colorado. Dr Lebby is also part-time CEO of OneChip Photonics, part-time chair of optoelectronics at Glyndwr University in Wales, UK as well as director of corporate relations at USC in Los Angeles. In 2015, Michael has been focusing on InP based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), polymer modulators, and optoelectronic integrated circuits (OEICs) for the datacenter segment and has been involved in assembling California's proposal (via USC) to the Federal Government for an integrated photonics manufacturing institute. Michael helped achieve >$400M in matching funding and also synthesized the proposal's datacenter and integrated photonics roadmaps for the next decade. In 2016, Michael will be helping Lightwave Logic drive their new polymer photonics PIC platform towards datacenter and telecom opportunities.
