Innovative materials and fabrication technology at the summit of nanotechnology in Tokyo


The nano tech in Tokyo, the world's largest international exhibition for nanotechnology, once again attracts nanotechnology experts around the world. From February 14-16, 2018 more than 50,000 international visitors are expected to visit the Big Sight exhibition center in Tokyo.

Focal points of the nano tech 2018 are innovative advanced materials such as graphene and fullerenes, nanoparticles, nano coatings, nano inks and nano composites, carbon nanotubes, photonic, magnetic and biocompatible materials as well as nano-based fabrication technologies and evaluation and measurement applications down to the nanometer scale.

The products and technologies presented are used in a wide variety of industries, such as the area of IT, software and electronics, the automotive industry, aerospace and life sciences. Trend topics include the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics and artificial intelligence (AI).

The IVAM Microtechnology Network will attend the nano tech once more and presents a joint pavilion within the "German Area". The following international exhibitors will introduce their product innovations on-site:

As an industry-oriented research institute Fraunhofer ISC develops materials, coating solutions, customized nanoparticles as well as cost-efficient production and upscaling processes and offers extensive nano analyses and testing. At the fair, Fraunhofer ISC will present nanotechnology-based project work as well as functional prototypes, including ultra-barrier materials, functional coatings and nanoparticles, micro-optics and microelectronics, dielectrics and passivation for electrical interconnection technology as well as nano-imprint, TPA and 2PP technology.

GrapheneTech will present its "Graphene Nanoplatelets Powder" at the trade fair. The powder is produced using a proprietary top-down green process based on mechanical exfoliation, without the use of any chemical or solvent. This patented method allows tuning the manufacture process to obtain different grades of graphene nanoplatelets with different characteristics that will ensure the adaptation of the material to the final application of each client. Currently Graphene-Tech supplies three grades of graphene nanoplatelets (GP500, GP300, GP100) as well as dispersions.

The Institute of plastics technology of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences will present itself and its research at the nano tech 2018. The University is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Germany with around 16,000 students and over 60 degree programs. The university’s range of programs and research capacities extends from engineering sciences, mathematics, information science and computer science to management, social sciences, and social work, as well as architecture, media, and design.

At the fair, Multiphoton Optics GmbH will present a LithoProf3D structuring platform for high-precision 3D printing, which is used, among other things, for applications in the field of optics / photonics, life sciences, biomedicine, or mask production. The company manufactures 3D laser lithography systems for the production of optical packages and biomedical products and offers a prototyping and manufacturing service. LithoP&E prototyping and engineering support for industry, institutes, universities and consulting services, for example with respect to the implementation of conventional two- and three-dimensional process technologies, like high-precision 3D printing, are also part of the product portfolio.

Nano Coatings S.L. is a cutting-edge start-up company founded in October 2014. They focus on obtaining synthetic diamond by using highly advanced technological processes. Their own technology for diamond coating synthesis, based on PECVD, makes the company capable of producing virtually any type of diamond material. They commercialize the range of products, both synthetic single crystal diamond and polycrystalline diamond coatings, for industrial applications such as optics, electronics or cutting tools, amongst others, and jewelry.

Furthermore, it will be possible to make contact with the Nanoinitiative Bayern GmbH, whose focus is on networking of SMEs with each other and with universities, universities of applied sciences and research institutions. They facilitate an efficient transfer of R&D&I results into marketable products and the promotion of cooperation aiming at concrete projects, i.e. in the field of nanocarbon materials, nano inks, nanosilver or nano-analytics. Core competencies are the initiation, support and coordination of projects and networks up to the complete project management, the support of project proposals and the organization of customer-specific innovation workshops and seminars.

Being an international high-tech network, the IVAM Microtechnology Network has been supporting companies and institutes from all over the world for more than 20 years. One of the key tasks of the association is to create synergies and to support its members in sharing knowledge, initiating collaborative projects, and building relationships with each other and potential clients. Through targeted technology marketing, IVAM accelerates the implementation of innovative ideas into marketable products.

Im Focus: Space observation with radar to secure Germany's space infrastructure

Satellites in near-Earth orbit are at risk due to the steady increase in space debris. But their mission in the areas of telecommunications, navigation or weather forecasts is essential for society. Fraunhofer FHR therefore develops radar-based systems which allow the detection, tracking and cataloging of even the smallest particles of debris. Satellite operators who have access to our data are in a better position to plan evasive maneuvers and prevent destructive collisions. From April, 25-29 2018, Fraunhofer FHR and its partners will exhibit the complementary radar systems TIRA and GESTRA as well as the latest radar techniques for space observation across three stands at the ILA Berlin.

The "traffic situation" in space is very tense: the Earth is currently being orbited not only by countless satellites but also by a large volume of space...

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...
