Fraunhofer FEP is celebrating twenty years of research in the area of coating on flat substrates.
“Coating of Flat Substrates” has been one of the main business fields of Fraunhofer FEP for twenty years. During this period, an impressive technological platform was established. Today two vertical in-line sputter coaters offer a wide range of possibilities for research and development. The team is comprised of experts with many years of experience in process optimization and in creation of various layers or layer stacks.
Vision Flat is aimed to celebrate the achievements and, at the same time, to unite various approaches to glazing in order to address jointly the challenges in smart buildings of the future.
The two-day international and unique event comprises various aspects of energyefficient glazing.
The opening session focuses on the entire building envelopes on the holistic and architectural level. It also initiates the general discussion on the development of flat coating technology over the years and the requirements to the processes in view of current economic development.
Apart from that, novel concepts of flexible large area lighting and solutions on energy generation based on organic technology will be presented. Finally, the participants will be able to gain insights in one of the restauration projects conducted at the Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) in Dresden.
Whereas the opening session approaches the glazing in its entirety, the second day offers a possibility to participate in a detailed technological discussion, which includes the aspects of glass corrosion, glass processing by Flash Lamp Annealing, creation of precision coatings and the impact of glazing on energy efficiency in cars.
The closing session will deal with components applied in the coating process, as targets and sources, which enable to implement cost-efficient coatings on large areas.
Meet our experts and friends in a pleasant atmosphere and celebrate with us!
We are looking forward to inspiring discussions with partners and companies!

World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
