  • This fact sheet provides an overview of funding mechanisms for research partners and projects that align with the SSL R&D Plan.
  • This guide has been prepared to assist those in the oil and gas industry who may not be totally familiar with how the federal government, particularly the US Department of Energy (DOE), does business with private sector companies. Basic information is provided on what DOE is trying to do, why it wants to work with the oil and gas industry, how it can work with companies, and who to contact and where to write for further information. This last item is noteworthy because it is important for users of this guide to be able to get the details about subjectsmore » that may interest them. The guide provides an address and/or phone number for every topic covered to prevent informational deadends''. If a question is not adequately answered by the guide, please do not hesitate to contact the appropriate person or office.« less
  • This project developed an integrated substrate which organic light emitting diode (OLED) panel developers could employ the integrated substrate to fabricate OLED devices with performance and projected cost meeting the MYPP targets of the Solid State Lighting Program of the Department of Energy. The project optimized the composition and processing conditions of the integrated substrate for OLED light extraction efficiency and overall performance. The process was further developed for scale up to a low-cost process and fabrication of prototype samples. The encapsulation of flexible OLEDs based on this integrated substrate was also investigated using commercial flexible barrier films.
  • This report offers a design and recommendations for implementing a program of education to assist Department of Energy buyers and procurement officers in increasing the quality and quantity of small disadvantaged business (DB) participation in their contracted work. The recommendations are based on a previous companion report, ''Issues in Contracting with Small Minority Businesses,'' from which technical assistance and related needs were derived. The assistance program is based on buyer and disadvantaged-business needs, as determined from synthesizing the results of interviews with over two dozen minority business leaders and procurement officers.
  • The project had two main tasks: One addressed the materials and device development and it was carried out at Boston University. The second addressed the theory and simulation of materials and devices and it was carried out at Science Application International Corporation (SAIC). Each task had a number of sub-tasks which are described in the following table. Progress in these tasks is described in this section.
