GLASS4FLEX – pioneering new process technologies for flexible glass in optical systems

Ultra-thin glass – one human hair thick – is ideally suited as a material for mass production of optical components and parts as well as for encapsulating optical and optoelectronic systems. Its production requires a completely coordinated process chain – from manufacture to functionalization. This is the goal to be accomplished by 2022 in the GLASS4FLEX joint research project.

Rapid test to ensure high milk quality

Standards of food safety and food quality have never been higher in Germany and throughout the European Union. This is especially true in the dairy industry. Yet despite such high standards, traces of impurities, pesticides and antibiotics can find their way into milk, with sometimes serious consequences for consumer health. In the EU-funded project MOLOKO, Fraunhofer researchers have teamed up with partners to develop a new optoplasmonic sensor designed to provide fast, on-site analysis of safety and quality parameters for milk.

Extending the functional lives of biological heart valve prostheses

The newly in-house developed process, called SULEEI, makes it possible to sterilize and preserve decellularized pericardial tissue by means of photo-initiated ultraviolet crosslinking with low-energy electron irradiation. The complex procedure is under evaluation in cooperation with the department of cardiac surgery belonging to the heart center of the university hospital as part of the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and will be presented at the XPOMET Festival taking place in Berlin on October 10–12, 2019.

German-Czech Workshop on Nanomaterials

The workshop originated in Sankt Peter-Ording 2012 as rather informal meeting of German and Czech research groups focused on nanoparticles formed in low temperature plasma and their applications. Since that time, three workshops were already organized in Prague 2014, Lübeck 2016 and České Budějovice 2018. The next workshop will be held in Dresden.
