    Based in Champaign, Ill., the company plans to use the new money to commercialize its flagship product: a 36 square-inch panel (just a quarter inch thick) that generates 15 to 20 lumens of cool white light per watt. It consists of two pieces of glass, a phosphor, wire mesh and an emitter. It is expected to sell for $30, but distribution is still being arranged. Interestingly, the Air Force is testing it for various applications, and may sign a contract with the company pending results.
