The Fraunhofer FEP speaks at the SVC TechCon on May 3 – 8th, 2014 in Chicago and provides insights into various research findings in the area of advanced processes for functional coatings.
The team of scientists from the Fraunhofer FEP presents vacuum processes for encapsulation, generation of optical coatings and treatment of flexible glass.
Dr. John Fahlteich, senior scientist from the department Flexible Products, will outline the requirements, technologies and perspectives for thin-film encapsulation of flexible electronics.
During his talk he will highlight concepts for direct encapsulation as well as for roll-to-roll-manufacturing of barrier films and put up for discussion current challenges, latest trends and emerging encapsulation solutions. Moreover, John will also run a short course giving a comprehensive overview about the state-of-the-art in the field of transparent thin film permeation barriers.
Dr. Daniel Gloess, department leader Dynamic Coatings in the Precision Coatings Division, will focus on coatings for optical applications. In his first talk he will elaborate a reactive magnetron sputtering process for fabrication of dense, smooth and environmentally stable films for precision optics.
In this process films of materials like SiO2, Al2O3 or Nb2O5 are deposited with very little absorption and scattering losses. Due to the high deposition rate of the reactive magnetron sputtering process a high productivity can be achieved. Daniel will depict the machine design, technology, control possibilities as well as in-situ monitoring behind this process concluding his speech with examples of applications.
In his second talk, he will focus on the synthesis and deposition of nanoparticles by gas phase condensation. This process, combined with a PECVD, allows to generate nanocomposite films with plasmonic properties.
Dr. Christian May, head of Division Flexible Organic Electronics, will present the latest results regarding flexible OLED for lighting applications. He will speak about the roll-to-roll line concept for research and development of OLED lighting for automotive and other transport applications.
Finally, Dr. Manuela Junghaehnel, senior scientist from the Department of Flat Substrates, will speak about large area sputtering of dielectric and infrared blocking layer stacks on flexible glass. She will especially focus on critical parameters of thin-film sputtering deposition considering handling and performance of flexible glass in existing thin-film coating equipment at the Fraunhofer FEP.
The above-mentioned processes will be also demonstrated on a car exhibit at our booth #1334 where the team of experts expects you.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
