DELO wins RadTech Europe Award for Innovation

21.11.2007
DELO Industrial Adhesives receives the Radtech Europe Award for the development of UV-curing epoxies for OLED-displays. The prize is awarded by the Radtech Europe Association and goes to innovative technologies in the sector of radiation curing.

„We are proud of having received this award for the development of our UV-curing epoxies“, said Sabine Herold, Managing Director of DELO Industrial Adhesives. „New technologies such as OLED displays are currently on the run and are already used for mobile phones. This means great potenzial for us as a manufacturer of tailor-made adhesives“. The Radtech Award gives an award to products using radiation curing technology in the sectors printing and packaging, industrial coatings and adhesives as well as automotive.

Display technologies such as OLED are on the rise

OLED-displays consist of organic substances and are very sensitive to humidity and oxygen. Therefore, the OLEDs need to be encapsulated between two glass plates. Here, the UV-curing epoxy resins of DELO come into use. The adhesive stands out by an extremely low permeation for oxygen and humidity. Moreover, the encapsulation compounds do not have to be thermally postcured; their functionality is achieved by pure light-curing. This leads to significantly shorter process cycles in mass production as well as to a great reduction in production costs.

On November 13th, 2007, Dr. Dietmar Dengler, Head of Research & Development at DELO, received the award from the Radtech Europe Association in Vienna. DELO has already been awarded the price for the second time . The Radtech Europe Association is a worldwide operating organization aiming to support and promote the use of light-curing technologies.

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
