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: Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Using an ultra fast-scanning atomic force microscope, a team of researchers from the University of Basel has filmed “living” nuclear pore complexes at work for the first time. Nuclear pores are molecular machines that control the traffic entering or exiting the cell nucleus. In their article published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers explain how the passage of unwanted molecules is prevented by rapidly moving molecular “tentacles” inside the pore.

Using high-speed AFM, Roderick Lim, Argovia Professor at the Biozentrum and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute of the University of Basel, has not only directly...

Im Focus: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
