Quantum Dot Photemitter


Overview: The research has one component.

(1) It has been proven that coating the filament of a lightbulb with graphene dissipates heat more efficiently. The results are longer lasting (>60,000hrs), brighter, low power lighting technology that operates at cooler temperatures and is 10% more efficient compared to traditional LED lighting. Replacing lighting systems across our warfighting centers with cooler graphene LED lighting has the potential to reduce HVAC cost by the means of a reduction in the amount of heat removal required to maintain comfortability. Furthermore, the longer lifetimes of graphene LED lighting will cut maintenance and procurement costs because facilities will not have to buy and replace as many bulbs. Proposed is a feasibility study to determine the energy savings of commercially available graphene LED lighting technologies for use in the DoD.

Responsibilities: This enables on the fly restructuring, or self-healing, of edge networks in the event of an outage in order to maintain power. The project will propose a demonstration at the EXWC Microgrid Test Bed after a review of the framework.

Considered Major(s): Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics

Qualifications: Basic Circuits, Heat Transfer, Optics, and or equivalent speech courses. Preferred military experience, Capability to handle characterization equipment without damaging components, and Familiarity with NAVFAC.
