On April 13-17, 2015, the latest trends and technologies along the entire industry value chain are on display at the world’s biggest industrial fair, HANNOVER MESSE.
Special attention is directed towards the key technologies microtechnology, nanotechnology, photonics and advanced materials: these technologies make industrial processes and products faster, cheaper and more efficient and assure and improve product quality in the long run.
IVAM Microtechnology Network concentrates these innovations in key technologies at a joint pavilion, which will take up a space of about 350 square meters in exhibition hall 3 – in close vicinity of Surface Technology and SchauplatzNano. IVAM CEO Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich explains the move to a new environment:
“The booth’s focus in exhibition hall 3 lies on connecting businesses from the fields of micro- and nanotechnology with each other and their technologies’ users. Based on our numerous activities in the nano field – IVAM is a founding member of Nano-in-Germany – and to focus synergies, the established IVAM Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials” will take place in direct neighborhood of other German nano initiatives in the future.
This way, we again create a central starting point for users of micro- and nanotechnologies that is set to take the place of the former leading trade fair MicroNanoTec."
The IVAM Product Market will highlight nanotechnology applications, micro components, structures and precision parts; systems for precise process and production control and quality assurance; industrial surfaces and materials engineering; future-proof solutions for industrial production processes and international technology development.
Businesses interested in exhibiting at the high-tech Product Market can find more information on HANNOVER MESSE at IVAM’s website at http://ivam.de/HM15.

A biological and energy-efficient process, developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck, converts nitrogen compounds in wastewater treatment facilities into harmless atmospheric nitrogen gas. This innovative technology is now being refined and marketed jointly with the United States’ DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water). The largest DEMON®-system in a wastewater treatment plant is currently being built in Washington, DC.
The DEMON®-system was developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck 11 years ago. Today this successful technology has been implemented in about 70...
Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.
The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...
In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.
In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...
