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.

Optical quantum computers can revolutionize computer technology. A team of researchers led by scientists from Münster University and KIT now succeeded in putting a quantum optical experimental set-up onto a chip. In doing so, they have met one of the requirements for making it possible to use photonic circuits for optical quantum computers.
Optical quantum computers are what people are pinning their hopes on for tomorrow’s computer technology – whether for tap-proof data encryption, ultrafast...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.
“Augmented-reality” and “wearables” have become terms we encounter almost daily. Both can make daily life a little simpler and provide valuable assistance for...
With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
Elpasolite is a glassy, transparent, shiny and soft mineral with a cubic crystal structure. First discovered in El Paso County (Colorado, USA), it can also be...
For the first time, Fraunhofer IKTS shows additively manufactured hardmetal tools at WorldPM 2016 in Hamburg. Mechanical, chemical as well as a high heat resistance and extreme hardness are required from tools that are used in mechanical and automotive engineering or in plastics and building materials industry. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden managed the production of complex hardmetal tools via 3D printing in a quality that are in no way inferior to conventionally produced high-performance tools.
Fraunhofer IKTS counts decades of proven expertise in the development of hardmetals. To date, reliable cutting, drilling, pressing and stamping tools made of...
