2014 SSL R&D Workshop Presentations Posted
February 7, 2014
Thank you to all who participated in the 11th annual DOE Solid-State Lighting R&D Workshop, held January 28–30 in Tampa, Florida. With passion, enthusiasm, and lots of new ideas, 200 attendees explored such topics as creating added value with intelligent lighting and using spectral control to shape the lighting experience.
The workshop offered a rich mix of perspectives and insights from manufacturers, research institutions, industry, academia, and government—and a unique forum to discuss innovative concepts, new directions, and key barriers that stand in the way of moving the technology to the next level. The input gathered from attendees will inform updates to DOE's SSL R&D Multi-Year Program Plan, which is widely consulted by government and industry both here and abroad, and also guides DOE's SSL funding solicitations.
The workshop presentations and materials are now available.
