The U. S. department of energy (doe) announced five leds and SSL r&d project, for $12. 5 million
the U. S. department of energy ( DOE) Announced a $74 million research and development ( 研发) Money, as the building energy efficiency frontier technology and innovation ( 好处) Part of the plan, including $12. 5 million for the LED project and solid-state lighting ( SSL) Department. Even if the U. S. department of energy has taken action against encourage the use of LED lighting of the laws and regulations, the agency continues to energy-saving technology to provide a certain amount of money. But, a few new projects with different quality of light Angle, this is we noticed that the LED and the trend of SSL domain is widespread.
伦斯勒理工学院的LESA ( Lighting system and applications) Laboratory is one of research organizations to obtain DOE funding to nearly $3 million. The laboratory is committed to 'develop and test a new platform, is used in the automatic steering lighting design and control, almost don't need to manual work. 'Targets will be based on the LED lighting, the lighting can be programmatically or autonomous way provide sculpture lighting, can minimize energy consumption, and can be optimized quality. Goal is to light real-time dynamic optimization.
LESA system will eventually use sensors, mechanical devices and has different spectral power distribution ( 社会民主党) The multiple SSL channels. In addition, the researchers will use digital twin model to simulate the target function of lighting equipment, so as to realize the design concept of more iterations. Our series of articles in the magazine has recently introduced the concept of digital twin.
recently funds include project based on more efficient leds. Lumileds will work with the university of Michigan, university of new Mexico. Sandia national laboratories ( 桑迪亚国家实验室) And the Ohio state university ( 俄亥俄州立大学) So-called green gap problem are discussed in this paper, in the green gap, green LED energy efficiency in shorter and longer wavelengths are lagging behind the efficiency. The team is committed to the extension optimization in order to solve the gap. Better green LED widely used can be monochrome red, green and blue ( RGB) White light leds to provide high quality.
the funded research will also be extended to Nanosys and get $2 million at the university of California Mercedes, quantum dots, to study do not contain heavy metals but effective formula to provide a better color rendering. Indeed, last summer we introduced the osram opto semiconductors Osconiq S 3030 QD LED, the cadmium content in the fluorescent powder/quantum dot formula to a certain extent, limit the product.
in the end, the DOE prize also includes two projects focusing on the OLED. We have previously pointed out that even if the relative to the inorganic LED technology, the performance, cost and reliability of the gap is more and more big, DOE will continue to invest in OLED technology. The agency also reports the reliability of OLED panel test last year.
in the latest research and development, will receive $1. 5 million at the Massachusetts institute of technology, to develop the blue OLED stability and service life. In addition, manufacturers OLEDWorks won nearly $1. 5 million of funds, to improve the effect of flexible white OLED panel and prolong its service life.
