Trade Fair  /  June 27, 2023  -  June 30, 2023


LASER World of Photonics is the world's leading trade fair for photonics components, systems and applications and is taking place for the 26th time this year. The trade fair offers its visitors a combination of research, technology and application, covering the entire spectrum of services. Through a supporting programme with advanced forums, panels and international talks, LASER serves as a unique platform for networking and knowledge transfer.

The Fraunhofer IST will also be represented at this important trade fair as part of a joint booth of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. We will present our software MOCCA there and look forward to your visit.

The complexity and variety of products requires an ever increasing degree of automation of plants. The Fraunhofer IST has therefore developed the MOCCA software, which can take over both the optical broadband monitoring of the individual layers of a filter and the control of the EOSS® system (Enhanced Optical Sputtering System).

The software's functions include process or production planning, substrate handling and routines for automatic shutdown and restart in the event of power failures. In addition, the software continuously learns from processes that have been carried out. The user of the system does not have to intervene between individual coating jobs.
