DOE Announces Third Round of SSL Manufacturing Funding

The US DOE has announced a $7.1 million fund as part of the latest SSL Manufacturing R&D program, but congressional budget cuts have affected funding for new core-technology research and product development projects. The selected three projects for solid-state lighting (SSL) as part of its 3rd round of funding for SSL Manufacturing R&D are:

  • Cree, based in Durham, NC, has been awarded one project, with the goal of developing an optimized LED fixture that can be readily integrated into buildings and outdoor applications using fewer raw materials.
  • KLA Tencor based in Milpitas, CA, will seek to improve the color consistency of LEDs by developing a high-precision hot-testing tool that can be used during LED manufacturing.
  • K-Space Associates of Dexter, MI, will build on the company's existing optical monitoring methods to enable high-precision measurement of organic LED (OLED) layers.
