2009 DOE SSL Manufacturing Workshop Report Posted

The U.S. Department of Energy has published the summary report from the 2009 DOE Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Manufacturing Workshops, held April 21–22 in Fairfax, Virginia, and June 24–25 in Vancouver, Washington.

The workshops were key first steps in the launch of a new DOE SSL research and development (R&D) manufacturing initiative to enhance product consistency and quality and to accelerate cost reductions through manufacturing improvements. More than 350 total participants—chip makers, fixture and component manufacturers, and others—joined DOE at the workshops to examine underlying issues related to materials, equipment, and other factors that influence SSL product quality and cost. The Fairfax workshop attendees identified key barriers and recommendations toward lower-cost, higher-quality SSL products, and this input was used to develop a “strawman” roadmap for review at the Vancouver workshop. The final version of the roadmap represents industry consensus on the expected evolution of SSL manufacturing.
