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: Lasers are the key to mastering challenges in lightweight construction

Many joining and cutting processes are possible only with lasers. New technologies make it possible to manufacture metal components with hollow structures that are significantly lighter and yet just as stable as solid components. In addition, lasers can be used to combine various lightweight construction materials and steels with each other. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen is presenting a range of such solutions at the LASER World of Photonics trade fair from June 22 to 25, 2015 in Munich, Germany, (Hall A3, Stand 121).

Lightweight construction materials are popular: aluminum is used in the bodywork of cars, for example, and aircraft fuselages already consist in large part of...

Im Focus: Solid-state photonics goes extreme ultraviolet

Using ultrashort laser pulses, scientists in Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have demonstrated the emission of extreme ultraviolet radiation from thin dielectric films and have investigated the underlying mechanisms.

In 1961, only shortly after the invention of the first laser, scientists exposed silicon dioxide crystals (also known as quartz) to an intense ruby laser to...

Im Focus: Advance in regenerative medicine

The only professorship in Germany to date, one master's programme, one laboratory with worldwide unique equipment and the corresponding research results: The University of Würzburg is leading in the field of biofabrication.

Paul Dalton is presently the only professor of biofabrication in Germany. About a year ago, the Australian researcher relocated to the Würzburg department for...

Im Focus: Basel Physicists Develop Efficient Method of Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.

Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...
