The focus of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to support applied research in certain key technical areas by fostering a collaborative atmosphere favorable to overcoming the significant technical challenges that restrict the application of solid-state lighting (SSL).
Significant technical challenges still remain to the adoption of viable SSL. The technical challenges that impede penetration into mainstream general illumination markets are complex and require the combined resources of many researchers and the unique research tools found only at a limited number of universities, national laboratories, and research institutions. The collaborations sought under this announcement will help mitigate or reduce the level of technical risk by providing significant financial resources.
