After the successful premiere of the special exhibition area "Microtechnologies for Optical Devices" at the W3 Fair+Convention 2019, the IVAM Microtechnology Network will again present the joint area at the networking fair for optics, microtechnology and precision engineering in February 2020. The IVAM area will show the wide-ranging potential of microtechnologies for optics and photonics.
Microtechnology is essential for high-precision optical products
Micro- and nanotechnology is used in the production, positioning, coating and refinement as well as in the quality control of optical components. At a specialist forum at the W3 trade fair, exhibitors of the IVAM area will present their know-how in the application fields of photonics, automotive, laser technology, innovation management, design and product development, DIN standards, Industry 4.0. and international business.
In the special exhibition area "Microtechnologies for Optical Devices" at the W3 Fair+Convention in Wetzlar the following exhibitors are going to show their products and innovations:
Accumold is a high-tech manufacturer of precision micro molded plastic components with part geometries from 5 cm to less than 1 mm in size. Processes include insert molding, clean room molding and 2-shot molding. Materials include PEEK, Ultem, LCP, and most engineered thermoplastics. Markets include: microelectronics, medical, micro optics, sensors and other emerging technologies.
At the W3+ fair, the CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik will present various highlights such as customer-specific silicon photodiodes and arrays in almost any shape and size to realize compact emitter-receiver assemblies. In addition, CiS shows innovative silicon-based packages for improved performance of sensitive UV LEDs. With time constants of only 3 ms, miniaturized IR emitters for gas sensor technology exceed the previous state of the art by an order of magnitude.
FRT GmbH is one of the world's leading manufacturers of 3D surface metrology and will present a specially developed mobile measuring system on-site: Whether large machine, difficult to access vehicle interior, permanently mounted roller or bulky glass pane: if measurements have to be taken "on site", the compact and portable 3D measuring tool MicroSpy Mobile, which weighs only five kilograms, is ready to use within a few minutes. New and specially designed for the MicroSpy Mobile is a high-quality roller case. It ensures the safe transport of all components of the 3D measuring system.

Together with their colleagues from the University of Würzburg, physicists from the group of Professor Alexander Szameit at the University of Rostock have devised a “funnel” for photons. Their discovery was recently published in the renowned journal Science and holds great promise for novel ultra-sensitive detectors as well as innovative applications in telecommunications and information processing.
The quantum-optical properties of light and its interaction with matter has fascinated the Rostock professor Alexander Szameit since College.
Researchers at the University of Zurich show that different stem cell populations are innervated in distinct ways. Innervation may therefore be crucial for proper tissue regeneration. They also demonstrate that cancer stem cells likewise establish contacts with nerves. Targeting tumour innervation could thus lead to new cancer therapies.
Stem cells can generate a variety of specific tissues and are increasingly used for clinical applications such as the replacement of bone or cartilage....
