What tomorrow’s monitoring of coating processes might look like will be presented by the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) at the Optatec 2018 in Frankfurt/Main from May 15th to 17th, 2018, in hall 3 at booth A 58. This year’s three focuses of the LZH are: in-situ particle detection, spectrally high-resolution online monitoring and flexible measurement technology.
Especially for longer coating processes it is important to check the optics for defect growth and inclusions during the process.
The LZH develops systems for in-situ particle detection, which can be used to control complex coatings.
These make it possible to identify sources of contamination in the process and to minimize or even eliminate them.
Spectrally high-resolution online monitoring and flexible measurement technology
Complex multi-layer systems with the highest spectral requirements call for a high-resolution layer thickness monitoring in order to be able to meet the specifications.
The LZH is working on online monitoring systems that also meet future resolution requirements. Likewise, the LZH is researching a flexible measurement technology for quality control even for small optics and fibers.
At the trade fair, the LZH will continue to offer its expertise and advice in the area of coating and process development.
These include optics for space applications, astronomy, laser applications and lighting technology.

Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.
It surrounds us and almost unconsciously accompanies us through everyday life - printed electronics. It starts with smart labels or RFID tags in clothing, we...
The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.
Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.
Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.
Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
