July 13, 2017: Energy Department Invests $8 Million in Efficient Lighting R&D
The Energy Department is announcing funding for seven R&D projects that will support key scientific advancements in solid-state lighting (SSL) technology. The projects will help accelerate the development of high-quality light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) lighting products that can significantly reduce energy costs for American families and businesses by using less electricity than products currently in use, and ensure that the U.S. remains a global leader in SSL innovation. Among projects:
- Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA) — Discovery of novel organic blue materials and corresponding laboratory devices for high-efficiency white OLEDs. (Kippelen PI, Marder, Bredas co-PIs)
