Photonics plays a key role in the development and production of micro- and nanopatterns on large-area flexible substrates targeting electronic, optoelectronic, photovoltaic and sensoric applications, film processing and packaging as well as pharmaceuticals and biosciences.

The one-day hands-on training course provides industry, especially those developing new products or addressing an application need, with a detailed overview of methods for the development and production of micro- and nanostructured surfaces and the benefits for various applications.

The course will introduce 3 demonstrators:
1) Lab-on-a-Foil, 2) holographic security features, 3) Biomimetic structures

Course attendees will learn how these nano- and microstructures are designed, fabricated and tested. They will also learn how early-stage prototypes can be scaled to volume manufacturing.

  • Understand the benefits of micro- and nanostructures on large areas and be able to translate this knowledge into innovative ideas and products
  • Understand the product design process and manufacturing ecosystem (hands-on activity): simulation based design, origination by laser lithography, Step & Repeat, Roll-to-Roll UV-Nanoimpring Lithography
No experience Medium experience
It is desirable but not essential that course attendees have a basic understanding of Photonics. The course is ideally suited to those planning to develop new products, where Photonics can bring innovative solutions. A pilot line production and later manufacturing should be of interest to the attendees.
