What role does CALiPER play in the SSL standards process?
Solid-state lighting differs fundamentally from traditional lighting technologies in terms of materials, drivers, system architecture, controls, and photometric properties. A host of new test procedures and industry standards is needed to accommodate these technical differences. To accelerate the development of needed standards for SSL products, DOE facilitates ongoing dialogue and collaboration with key standards-setting organizations, and offers technical assistance in the development of new standards. The CALiPER program provides feedback to these standards efforts. See the DOE SSL Standards Development page for more information.
