displays and solar cells be extended?Questions like this will be discussed on the symposium »pro flex 2010« in September in Dresden
by international experts from industry and academia.
30 speakers from 8 countries in Europe and Asia will present their up-to-date results concerning the production of flexible solar cells, touch-screens, batteries, flexible lighting or displays. The symposium focuses on the vacuum roll-to-roll coating technology, which allows cost-efficient manufacturing of flexible devices. Recent key developments on plant components, analytical methods for coatings as well as innovative applications are among the hot topics.
For 20 years the Fraunhofer Institute for Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP in Dresden has built up its expertise in developing coating technologies for a broad spectrum of substrates and purposes. By building key components for pilot plants their in-house machine shop enables immediate realization of processing ideas. Due to the boosting demand for coatings of flexible materials, the renowned institute hosted in 2004 for the first time the symposium »pro flex« to bring together parties involved in the production and use of flexible products in a face-to-face atmosphere.
The success of the previous two events confirmed the organizers of the necessity of this meeting platform.
Again, this year’s program promises the participants interesting and inspiring days in Dresden.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
