Within the new focus area MICRO-NANO-AREA, the IVAM Microtechnology Network and Deutsche Messe will pool the “Key Enabling Technologies” Micro- and Nanotechnology, MEMS, Photonics and Advanced Materials. With these technologies, production of structures, components and devices is becoming more precise, more reliable, more flexible and faster. The following exhibitors will present their product innovations on-site.
WISTA-MANAGEMENT GMBH is the operating company of the Berlin Adlershof Science and Technology Park. Berlin Adlershof Science City is one of the most successful high-technology sites in Germany. It is home to 1,013 companies and scientific institutions on an area of 4.2 km² - embedded in an integrated urban planning concept.
15,996 people work and 6,524 study here. The Science and Technology Park is at the heart of the Adlershof Science City. It encompasses 510 companies and ten non-university research institutes. They focus on: photonics and optics, renewable energies and photovoltaics, microsystems and materials, IT and media, biotechnology and environment and analytics.
The thermal photovoltaic system (TPV) of Duropan Alliance is a hybrid system that combines thermovoltaic technology cohesively with photovoltaic technology. Today's photovoltaic (PV) technology is characterized by an increased sensitivity to heat within rising temperature-stress.
Because of that, the TPV-system, consisting of a thermal transmitter (fluid flowed through support plate as a thermal diffuser, thermal barrier with embedded thermoelectric generators, thermal accumulator), which will be cohesively positioned on the surface of silicon solar cells, was developed.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS focusses on smart systems integration by using micro & nano technologies.
Micrometal GmbH presents etching in high volumes according to customers’ specifications. The most complex product shapes can be etched out of metal with tightest tolerances. Design options for photo etched parts are almost unlimited. With its special Inline production technology, Micrometal can etch sheets from 0.025 mm thickness.
Typical etched parts for a large variety of industries are filters, screens, grids, pins, lancets, contacts, blades, functional surfaces, etc. In cooperation with our partners, we can offer you comprehensive single-supplier solutions with added value.
Multiphoton Optics GmbH manufactures 3D laser lithography systems for the production of optical packages and biomedical products and offers a prototyping and manufacturing service. At Hannover Messe Multiphoton Optics presents its LithoProf3D-equipment for high-precision 3D printing for applications in optics/photonics, life sciences, biomedicine, mask fabrication, etc. as well as the LithoSoft3D-slicer software to create GCodes, designs of structures and different fabrication strategies.
The slicer is also available as stand-alone product. LithoP&E prototyping and engineering support for industry, institutes, and universities and consulting services, for example with respect to the implementation of conventional two-dimensional and three-dimensional process technologies (high-precision 3D printing), are also part of the product portfolio.
IVAM Microtechnology Network is an international association with members in the fields of microtechnology, nanotechnology, advanced materials and photonics. IVAM supports mainly small and medium-sized companies in bringing innovative technologies and products to market and thus securing advantages in international competition.
Since 1995 IVAM has been supporting companies and institutions from all around the world. The central mission of the association is to create synergies and to support its members in exchanging knowledge, initiating joint projects and networking with each other and potential customers.

Medica 2017: New software enables early diagnosis of arteriosclerosis

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
