DOE Releases Laboratory Call for Nanotechnology Research Applied to SSL

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory
(NETL), as part of Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s
(EERE) Building Technologies Program (BT), is seeking proposals for nanotechnology
applied to core research in the Solid State Lighting (SSL) program. The goal
of the program is to speed the development of practical solid state lighting
products with more energy efficient, longer lasting, and lower total cost of
ownership for interior lighting by 2025. The Department of Energy has developed
a SSL portfolio to address specific research priorities defined in their development
roadmap. The current laboratory
is the first to tackle the role of nanotechnology research within the
solid state lighting core research.
