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.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
