A look at optical materials, the new line of business at Fraunhofer IMWS

Improved lenses, new laser-processing systems, tailored glass ceramics: With the new line of business ‘Optical Materials and Technologies’ , the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS is expanding its offerings.

 

Innovative glass ceramics discovered

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS discovered new negatively expanding silicates and integrated them into innovative glass ceramics with low thermal expansion.

 

Evaluating Effect Pigments and Paints

Using the latest nanostructure analytics methods, the Fraunhofer IMWS is researching ways to add the right shine to paint.

 

Thin, thinner, ultrathin

Specimens examined in the electron microscope have to be particularly thin. A device has been developed at the Fraunhofer IMWS, which makes such samples quickly and precisely.

 

With 3D glasses into the Nano-world

CARL ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra makes it possible to carry out high-resolution 3D examinations of microstructures without particle accelerators

 

LEAZit – Low-expansion world innovation

Together with the Otto Schott Institute in Jena, an innovative, low-expansion glass ceramics method was developed – the first of its kind, 50 years after Zerodur, Ceran & Co.
