    Sputtering for precision optics

    Consumer electronics, semiconductor lithography, medicine, life sciences, solar energy, architecture, aerospace, automotive, telecommunications and quantum devices are pushing the boundaries of optical thin-film technology far beyond the current possibilities of established deposition processes and production strategies. Coating technologies are among the basic technologies in optics that directly determine the function and performance of optical systems. Optical coatings offer the ability to tailor the properties of surfaces to meet the diverse needs of modern and future applications. The market for it are above all anti-reflective coatings, Verspiegelungen, filters, polarizers and beam splitters. The workshop ”Sputtering for Precision Optics” uses practical examples to show which sputtering technology is most suitable for which application. In his lecture, Dr. Andreas Pflug, head of the Simulation group at the Fraunhofer IST, will present his results on the model-based production of optical filters on curved lens surfaces.

    22. Symposium Verbundwerkstoffe und Werkstoffverbunde

    Composites contribute significantly to the development of new products. The combination of materials with a wide variety of property profiles creates a wide range of possibilities for tailor-made product design. As part of the 22nd Symposium ”Verbundwerkstoffe und Werkstoffverbunde” in the city of Kaiserslautern, the Fraunhofer IST is represented with a scientific contribution. Dr. Andreas Dietz, Manager of the Business Unit ”Aerospace”, gives an insight into the topic »Surface Technology for the Generative Production of Polymer Components«.
