Contributions of the field Simulation

 

New possibilities with MOCCA

The MOCCA (Modular Optical Coating Control Application) software developed at the Fraunhofer IST is, in addition to the optical broadband monitoring of the individual layers of a filter, also capable of controlling the EOSS® (Enhanced Optical Sputtering System) facility.

 

Particles in coating processes

The Fraunhofer IST had developed a program which is capable of simulating the movement and charging of dust particles, resulting in the simulation software PALADIN – Plasma Lattice Dust Integrator.

 

Simulation of optical precision coatings

Data from a simulation performed at the Fraunhofer IST enables the optimization of shaper masks in order to solve problems during the production of optical components.

 

CALPHAD method

With the CALPHAD method (CALculation of PHAse Diagrams), which is based on the calculation of phase equilibrium states and thermodynamic properties in a defined system, material properties can be calculated.

 

Modeling of the coating on 3D components

At the Fraunhofer IST, a new method for accelerated the modelling of the film thickness profile on 3D substrates has been developed.

 

Simulation of dust particle movement

A particle simulation developed at the Fraunhofer IST enables the prediction of contamination of dust in plasma coating systems.

 

Simulation of layer morphology and layer stoichiometry

For the optimization of low-pressure coating processes, a parallelized simulation environment was developed.

 

Simulation of an HWCVD process for silicon deposition

At the Fraunhofer IST, a simulation model was developed to optimize the HWCVD process for Si deposition.
