Federal Lab-University Collaboration Using Nanotechnology To Develop Next Generation LED Lights

Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the University of Tennessee are using organic molecules to develop technology to improve LED lighting systems. One of the goals of the next generation LED being created is to consume less than half the power of technologies used today, thus lowering the overall power costs. The team is working to create LEDs into thin, flexible sheets that could someday be used in products ranging from flexible electronic displays to lighting fixtures. The group has already secured a $600,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
