nano tech in Tokyo: IVAM joint pavilion presented the enormous range of nanotechnology

01.03.2017

nano tech in Japan is the world's largest international nanotechnology exhibition and conference. More than 53,000 international experts visited the nano tech at the "Big Sight" exhibition ground in Tokyo in the middle of February and caught up on the latest developments and results in the fields of nanotechnology products, applications and processes. The exhibition stands out due to its huge internationality. Apart from trade visitors from Japan, especially guests from the neighboring countries Korea and China come to visit the exhibition.

At the joint pavilion of the IVAM Microtechnology Network, which was organized under the headline "Nano in Germany", 14 companies showcased their innovations.

The exhibitors on-site presented cost-effective manufacturing processes of specific nanoparticles, 3D production of printed nanoscales, commercial production of graphene, an important new nano material for a wide range of applications, or manufacturing of nanomaterials for applications in the fields of energy and environment.

In addition, nanotech solutions in the field of surface processing for the automotive industry, nanostructured membranes, e.g. for fuel cell technology, and functionalized nano surfaces for medical devices have been presented.

"The various applications that were presented at the IVAM area show the enormous range of nanotechnology applications," says Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich, Managing Director of IVAM. "The exhibitors on-site were very satisfied with the response from the visitors."

The IVAM exhibitors were able to make and maintain contacts with Japanese companies even outside the exhibition. The supporting program included, for example, a ceremonial opening with a traditional sake ceremony.

IVAM Managing Director Dr. Thomas Dietrich was allowed to open the sake barrel ceremoniously with a wooden hammer as deputy for Germany together with other guests of honor. Furthermore, the companies of the IVAM pavilion attended a reception of the German Embassy with the Minister of Economic Affairs of Saxony.

Because of the positive outcome of the fair IVAM reserved space for another German pavilion at nano tech 2018. Detailed information will be available soon from IVAM Microtechnology Network.

Im Focus: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

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...
