ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Samuel W. Bodman announced today that Sandia National Laboratories is the new home of the National Laboratory Center for Solid-State Lighting Research and Development. He made the announcement at a news conference at Sandia's International Programs Building.
Sandia will conduct vital solid-state lighting research and coordinate related research efforts at several other national laboratories.
DOE will provide funding of $5 million for seven research projects in solid-state lighting, including $2.6 million for four Sandia projects, Bodman said. The funding comes from DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
Sandia is a National Nuclear Security Administration laboratory.
"The research will be conducted at the new nanotechnology centers at our national laboratories," Bodman said, including the just dedicated Sandia/Los Alamos Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT). "This is part of nearly $20 million we are committing this year to support research and development efforts in this rapidly emerging technology."
