2014 SSL Manufacturing R&D Workshop Presentations Posted

May 14, 2014

Thank you to all who participated in the 6th annual DOE Solid-State Lighting Manufacturing R&D Workshop, held May 7–8 in San Diego. One hundred forty attendees attended two full days of formal and informal discussion on the latest manufacturing issues related to LED and OLED lighting as well as global trends and strategies for reducing costs, improving quality, and increasing volumes. Attendees noted the “intense and open discussion,” “eye-opening” presentations, and the opportunity to network with colleagues, customers, and competitors.

Also during the workshop, speakers and participants discussed proposed updates to the DOE SSL Manufacturing R&D Roadmap. This input will fuel the continuing development of the DOE manufacturing initiative, guide final updates to the roadmap, and inform DOE planning for upcoming R&D solicitations.

The workshop presentations and materials are now available.
