Glass substrate with nanoimprint

Glass substrate with a photoresist coating structured by nanoimprint lithography (NIL).

Material Research and Optics

In the topic of Material Research and Optics, our fields of work include:

 

Coatings, Technologies and Systems

 

Microstructured Surfaces

 

 

The topic of Material Research and Optics at Fraunhofer ISE covers methods and research areas which are relevant to many business areas at the institute. In particular, we develop optical-functional coatings for different applications, e.g. high temperature resistant absorber tubes for solar thermal power plants or thermal insulating glazings for buildings. Other functions relate to non-optical properties like antisoiling surface tension modifications or prevention of condensation by low infrared emittance. We also have the possibilities to test and analyze the degradation of multi-layer coatings and surfaces with our advanced characterization equipment like Auger spectroscopy with depth profiling or imaging features.

Fraunhofer ISE has both state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and extensive knowledge in the development, manufacture and characterization of coatings and structures. With our custom-designed pilot equipment, we can produce coatings on various substrates as prototypes and in small batch series as well as fabricate and replicate micro and nanostructures.
