The Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory, on behalf of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Building Technologies Program, is seeking applications for applied research in the Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Product Development Program. Specifically, the focus of this funding opportunity announcement is to solicit applications from industrial organizations that begin to examine certain high-priority product development activities that will advance the lighting research and development (LR&D) portfolio of SSL beyond its present embryonic state. Like previous funding opportunity announcements in the SSL series, this one seeks to advance and promote the collaborative atmosphere of the LR&D SSL program to identify potential product concepts and incorporate into products supportive technologies that are novel, innovative, and groundbreaking or that fill technology voids or otherwise represent a technological advancement of SSL products.
This announcement is composed of four areas of interest:
- LED Materials Issues – Device Materials
- LED Device Issues – Optical
- OLED Efficient Materials Development
- OLED Architectures That Improve Device Robustness, Lifetime, and Efficiency.
Applications under this Funding Opportunity Announcement must be submitted under one of these areas of interest.
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
