A key success factor for the broad penetration of LEDs (light emitting diodes) in the general lighting market is a solid state light source with high system efficiency and high quality at moderate prices. These were the objectives of the SSL4EU project which finished in June 2013. We have recently been in touch with the consortium to see what has become of the results of this project which registered 10 patents during its lifetime. Read more
