Advanced Processes for Functional Coatings at SVC

29.04.2014

The Fraunhofer FEP speaks at the SVC TechCon on May 3 – 8th, 2014 in Chicago and provides insights into various research findings in the area of advanced processes for functional coatings.

The team of scientists from the Fraunhofer FEP presents vacuum processes for encapsulation, generation of optical coatings and treatment of flexible glass.


Automotive technologies by Fraunhofer FEP

Dr. John Fahlteich, senior scientist from the department Flexible Products, will outline the requirements, technologies and perspectives for thin-film encapsulation of flexible electronics.

During his talk he will highlight concepts for direct encapsulation as well as for roll-to-roll-manufacturing of barrier films and put up for discussion current challenges, latest trends and emerging encapsulation solutions. Moreover, John will also run a short course giving a comprehensive overview about the state-of-the-art in the field of transparent thin film permeation barriers.

Dr. Daniel Gloess, department leader Dynamic Coatings in the Precision Coatings Division, will focus on coatings for optical applications. In his first talk he will elaborate a reactive magnetron sputtering process for fabrication of dense, smooth and environmentally stable films for precision optics.

In this process films of materials like SiO2, Al2O3 or Nb2O5 are deposited with very little absorption and scattering losses. Due to the high deposition rate of the reactive magnetron sputtering process a high productivity can be achieved. Daniel will depict the machine design, technology, control possibilities as well as in-situ monitoring behind this process concluding his speech with examples of applications.

In his second talk, he will focus on the synthesis and deposition of nanoparticles by gas phase condensation. This process, combined with a PECVD, allows to generate nanocomposite films with plasmonic properties.

Dr. Christian May, head of Division Flexible Organic Electronics, will present the latest results regarding flexible OLED for lighting applications. He will speak about the roll-to-roll line concept for research and development of OLED lighting for automotive and other transport applications.

Finally, Dr. Manuela Junghaehnel, senior scientist from the Department of Flat Substrates, will speak about large area sputtering of dielectric and infrared blocking layer stacks on flexible glass. She will especially focus on critical parameters of thin-film sputtering deposition considering handling and performance of flexible glass in existing thin-film coating equipment at the Fraunhofer FEP.

The above-mentioned processes will be also demonstrated on a car exhibit at our booth #1334 where the team of experts expects you.

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
