In total, the selected projects will receive nearly $10.5 million (€7.7 million). The supported organisations and companies will make a cost-share contribution, which will bring the total public and private investment in the projects up to at least $13.7 million (€10.1 million).

The projects supported by the DoE include a biodynamic hospital lighting system being developed by Philips and an attempt to improve the efficiency of OLED lighting by using nanocrystals to increase the light extraction.

This is the ninth round of the department’s investments in SLL core technology research and product development. The full list of funded projects can be found on the US Department of Energy’s website.
