The U.S. DOE Tenth Annual SSL R&D Workshop

Held last week in Long Beach, CA, focused on the knotty issues that are being encountered with today’s SSL products. Look for the workshop presentations to be posted soon at The following organizations were recognized by DOE for significant breakthroughs and achievements in 2012:

  • Philips Lumileds for its efforts to develop a novel warm-white LED package that boosts efficacy with a hybrid approach to producing white light.
  • RTI International for its work in developing an accelerated model to predict the reliability and evaluate the performance of SSL luminaires.
  • University at Buffalo for developing quantum-dot phosphors to improve the efficiency of general-illumination LEDs.
  • Soraa for its efforts to reduce current and thermal droop by growing semi- and non-polar gallium nitride wafers on gallium nitride substrates.
  • PPG Industries for its work in developing a low-cost, integrated glass substrate for general-illumination OLEDs.
