  • AlTiNTec

    Investigation of technologies for the deposition of wear-reducing aluminium-rich TiAlN coatings

    Funded by:
    Sächsisches Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Verkehr
    Funding reference: 100297970/3103
    Duration: 01.07.2017 - 30.06.2019

    Aluminium-rich titanium aluminium nitride coatings, which predominantly contain hard cubic phases, offer significantly better wear resistance compared to titanium aluminium nitride coatings with lower aluminium contents. With conventional PVD processes, such as magnetron sputtering or the arc process, predominantly cubic and stoichiometric titanium aluminum nitride coatings with an aluminum concentration > 32 at.% cannot be produced so far. In contrast, such aluminium-rich cubic titanium aluminium nitride layers can be deposited on hard metal substrates using a thermal CVD process. However, the reasons for the stabilization of the cubic phase in the CVD process at very high aluminum contents have not been clarified. Therefore, the relevant stabilization mechanisms shall be investigated, concepts for the improvement of the deposition of layers for the CVD process as well as for the considered PVD processes shall be developed, experimentally tested and the resulting layer and application properties shall be determined. The overall aim of this project is to investigate the mechanisms of CVD deposition in greater detail, to significantly improve the application properties of the titanium aluminium nitride coatings deposited by the PVD processes and to test PVD processes with a higher deposition rate and better coating properties.

    Funding reference: 03INT509AF
    Duration:
      01.08.2018 - 31.07.2021

    The project aims to develop large-area lighting applications with organic light emitting diodes (OLED) on flexible substrates. The focus is on ultra-thin glass, which offers advantages over plastic as a substrate due to its excellent barrier properties. For roll-to-roll manufacturing, a qualified substrate winding processes must be integrated into the coating system first. As a further challenge, laser cutting and structuring processes are being developed for substrate separation and interconnection. In addition, efficient protective coatings are being used for the OLEDs as well as transparent electrical contacts that add value to the lighting market. As a result, demonstrators are being developed to demonstrate the performance of the technology. A part of the technologies is being researched in cooperation with partners from the partner cluster in Yonezawa, Japan. The collaborative project is coordinated by Organic Electronics Saxony (OES).

  • LOMID

    Large cost-effective OLED microdisplays and their applications

    The LOMID project will define pathways to the manufacture of flexible OLED microdisplays with an exceptionally large area (16 mm x 20 mm, screen diagonal of 25.4 mm) at acceptably high yields (>65%). This will be achieved by developing a robust silicon-based chip design allowing high pixel counts (1024×1280 (SXGA)) and high spatial resolution (pixel sizes of 10 μm x 10 μm corresponding to 2000 ppi). These display innovations will be coupled to a highly reliable manufacturing of the backplane.

    The main objective of MOLOKO project is the manufacturing, implementation and validation of a self-managing and automatic miniaturized integrated photonic sensor to be used as process analytical instrumentation for fastresponse on-site monitoring of interest analytes for security and quality within milk supply chain. In particular, we aim at realizing multiplexing quantitative detection of up to 10 analytes among which food safety parameters, e.g. antibiotics (i.e. penicillin, ampicillin, cephalonium) and toxins (i.e. mycotoxins and bacterial toxins) and food quality parameters e.g. lactoferrin and caseins by implementing a highly-integrated optoplasmonic-microfluidic sensor in the strategic checkpoints along the entire supply and value chain of milk.
