Description

The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for the development of efficient red micro-LEDs with a pixel size of less than 5 microns for next-generation displays and visible light communication systems. The goal is to achieve high external quantum efficiency (>2%) for these micro-LEDs. The technology is of interest for strategic and tactical battlefield applications, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) systems, which require high resolutions and small areas. Existing red micro-LEDs have low efficiency when their size is less than 5 microns, posing a challenge for high-resolution AR/VR systems. The DOD is looking for innovative approaches to address this challenge, including new LED architectures that are compatible with RGB full-color integration and capable of accommodating large arrays. The project will be conducted in two phases: Phase I involves developing a proof-of-concept solution with pixel sizes of 2-5 microns and EQEs exceeding 2%, while Phase II focuses on developing and demonstrating a prototype device that meets the requirements. The project also has potential dual-use applications in the telecom industry and commercial markets. The deadline for proposal submission is June 12, 2024. More information can be found on the DOD SBIR/STTR website.
