The U.S. DOE has published the 2012 edition of the Solid-State Lighting Manufacturing R&D Roadmap, www.ssl.energy.gov/techroadmaps and has posted the summary report from the fourth annual SSL Manufacturing R&D Workshop, www.ssl.energy.gov/sanjose2012 held in San Jose, CA, June 13–14. Complementing the SSL R&D Multi-Year Program Plan (MYPP) that guides the Core and Product Development R&D programs, the Roadmap's primary goal is to guide the manufacturing R&D program and help direct funding solicitations for it. The Roadmap also provides guidance for equipment and material suppliers, based on industry consensus on the expected evolution of SSL manufacturing—thereby reducing risk, improving quality, increasing yields, and lowering costs.
