Following the first seven successful ICCG meetings, the 8th International Conference on Coatings on Glass and Plastics ICCG will be organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Enginering and Thin Films IST in Braunschweig, Germany.
Taking place from June 13-17, 2010, this leading conference in the field of coatings on glass and plastics provides an excellent platform to discuss the latest trends and their implementation in new technologies or products in the field of large-area coatings of glass and plastics. More than 400 participants and more than 30 international exhibitors at the accompanying technical exhibition know: Each of the five conference days offers a wide-ranging variety of interesting presentations on significant topics. Qualified and valuable contacts to decision makers, technicians, suppliers and high potentials are assured.
Each of these topics will be discussed in detail from different points of view and by lecturers with broad professional backgrounds. Prof. Dr. Günter Bräuer, Chairman of the ICCG8 and director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films states: "The application of coatings is an area which has become extremely important for large-area or high-volume glass products. Besides glass, plastics are becoming more and more important as substrates for optical and electronic applications. For this reason the conference focuses on the development and application of advanced coatings on both, glass and plastics, using a broad and multidisciplinary approach".
The 8th ICCG provides information on the different technologies at a general level for new product designers, but also examines technical aspects, safety measures, and environmental and economic factors.

CIS or CdTe - which semiconductor material will be superior in the market? Deposition methods to manufacture CIS based PV modules
The PV market has grown substantially with rates of more than 40 percent per year in the past decade. Crystalline silicon is still the dominating material, but thin films are taking over bigger shares. In 2008 already 15 percent of the shipments of PV modules worldwide have been thin films due to their cost advantages at high production volumes. The main materials for thin film PV modules are based on amorphous silicon, combinations thereof and the compound semiconductors CdTe and CIS. But which material and deposition method will finally be superior in cost and quality? At the ICCG8 an overview of the various deposition techniques and their potential regarding cost and quality will be given by Bernhard Dimmler, Director of Research and Development at Würth Solar GmbH & Co KG.For further scientific information please contact:
Cost efficient technologies for patterned surface functionalizations or coating are of great interest within the glass and plastic industry. Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST successfully demonstrated a roll-to-roll atmospheric pressure plasma process with area-selective surface modification of polymer film surfaces. Surfaces functionalized with this process are suitable for subsequent patterned electroless metallization and galvanic reinforcement for biosensors, solar cells, RFID tags or flexible printed circuits. Due to the additive technology a resource and cost efficient production process is possible. The potential for different application fields will be presented by Dr. Michael Thomas, Head of Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Processes at Fraunhofer IST.For further scientific details please contact:

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
