Vision Flat - Workshop on Future Glazing


Fraunhofer FEP is celebrating twenty years of research in the area of coating on flat substrates.

“Coating of Flat Substrates” has been one of the main business fields of Fraunhofer FEP for twenty years. During this period, an impressive technological platform was established. Today two vertical in-line sputter coaters offer a wide range of possibilities for research and development. The team is comprised of experts with many years of experience in process optimization and in creation of various layers or layer stacks.

Vision Flat – Workshop on coating on flat substrates

Vision Flat is aimed to celebrate the achievements and, at the same time, to unite various approaches to glazing in order to address jointly the challenges in smart buildings of the future.

The two-day international and unique event comprises various aspects of energyefficient glazing.

The opening session focuses on the entire building envelopes on the holistic and architectural level. It also initiates the general discussion on the development of flat coating technology over the years and the requirements to the processes in view of current economic development.

Apart from that, novel concepts of flexible large area lighting and solutions on energy generation based on organic technology will be presented. Finally, the participants will be able to gain insights in one of the restauration projects conducted at the Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) in Dresden.

Whereas the opening session approaches the glazing in its entirety, the second day offers a possibility to participate in a detailed technological discussion, which includes the aspects of glass corrosion, glass processing by Flash Lamp Annealing, creation of precision coatings and the impact of glazing on energy efficiency in cars.

The closing session will deal with components applied in the coating process, as targets and sources, which enable to implement cost-efficient coatings on large areas.

Meet our experts and friends in a pleasant atmosphere and celebrate with us!

We are looking forward to inspiring discussions with partners and companies!

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
