Pho­to­nic tech­no­lo­gies play a key role in the ongo­ing trend towards digi­ta­li­sa­tion in almost all areas of tech­no­logy and ever­y­day life. Pho­to­nic sen­sors, inte­gra­ted optics and minia­tu­ri­sed opti­cal sys­tems enable tech­no­lo­gi­cal inno­va­tions, new moni­to­ring methods and pro­cess opti­mi­sa­tion for the digi­ta­li­sa­tion and auto­ma­tion of the indus­trial production.

The pro­duc­tion of such opti­cal sys­tems and the deve­lo­p­ment of new mar­kets and appli­ca­ti­ons requi­res fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of tech­no­lo­gies and the in-depth cha­rac­te­ri­sa­tion of com­plex pro­ces­ses in the opti­cal manu­fac­tu­ring. The aim is to design these pre­cis­ely and cost-effec­tively and to deve­lop the manu­fac­tu­ring pro­ces­ses. Com­pared to pro­ces­ses in the elec­tro­nics pro­duc­tion, the effort invol­ved is usually hig­her due to the signi­fi­cantly grea­ter range of func­tions, mate­ri­als and struc­tures. At the same time, an incre­asing fusion of both areas, e.g. opti­cal func­tion­a­lity at wafer level, can be reco­g­nised. This is refer­red to as Wafer Level Optics.

Inno­va­tive pro­duc­tion tech­no­lo­gies for opti­cal coa­tings, e.g. for anti-reflec­tive coa­tings and dielec­tric mir­rors, fil­ters, beam split­ters and wave­gui­des are essen­tial for appli­ca­ti­ons in the minia­tu­ri­zed opti­cal sys­tems and inte­gra­ted optics, for image pro­ces­sing, pho­to­nic sen­sors and in the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try. Sput­te­ring tech­no­logy is one of these modern tech­no­lo­gies. In this work­shop, we would like to show you new, digi­ta­liza­tion dri­ven trends in the tech­no­lo­gies and appli­ca­ti­ons and how a wide variety of coa­ting mate­ri­als with the desi­red pro­per­ties can be applied to optics made of glass, metal or other materials.
