Solid-State Lighting Core Technologies

Funding: $3.75 million

Open Date: 05/12/2006

Close Date: 06/27/2006

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-PS26-06NT42831-00


The Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Building Technologies Program seeks applications for applied research in the Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Technologies Program. The focus of this funding opportunity announcement is to support applied research in key technical areas by fostering a collaborative atmosphere favorable to overcoming the significant technical challenges that restrict the application of SSL today to only relatively low-luminous-output products.

This funding opportunity focuses on four areas of interest:

  • LED Internal Quantum Efficiency
  • LED Extraction Efficiency: Device Approaches, Structures, and Systems and Strategies for Improved Light Extraction
  • OLED Materials Research: High-Efficiency, Low-Voltage, Stable Materials
  • Approaches to OLED Structures Between the Electrodes for Improved Performance Low-Cost, White-Light Devices.
