Conference Program

The organizers of this biennial meeting have invited coating scientists, technicians and managers to present papers for the conference.

Introductory Session

Market and Business in the Field of Coatings and Plastics
Chairmen: Dr. K. Suzuki, Mr. J. Vitkala

In preparation for the susequent eight technical sessions, the participants will be given an overview of the market and business related topics and trends, as well as current and future demands in the field of coatings on glass and plastics.

Technical Sessions

Session 1 - Advanced Vacuum Processes
Chairmen: Prof. Dr. G. Bräuer, Dr. J. Strümpfel

This comprehensive session will focus on all plasma related deposition techniques. Particularly advanced solutions for sputtering or PECVD will be addressed. Improvements regarding new applications of coatings, their morphology and enhanced productivity features will be highlighted.

Session 2 - Wet-chemical and Hybrid Processes
Chairmen: Dr. J. Pütz, Dr. G. Schottner

Wet-chemical processes such as sol-gel and electrochemical deposition are versatile and cost-efficient techniques to realize multifunctional systems. This session addresses conventional deposition, printing and patterning techniques on all substrates also in combination with vacuum deposition to realize more sophisticated functionalities such as gas barriers, hard coatings for polymers or smart coatings.

Session 3 - ALD, CVD, and Atmospheric Plasma Processes
Chairmen: Prof. Dr. D. Sheel, Prof. Drs. K. Spee

Session 3 will treat recent advances in materials, applications and processes based on coating processes involving gas phase deposition. Example processes will include CVD, ALD and atmospheric plasma processes.

Session 4 - Processes for Flexible Substrates
Chairmen: Mr. R. Shimshock, Dr. T. Kälber

Leaders in the field of roll-to-roll industrial processing of polymer and glass substrates will present overviews of next generation processes to anchor this session. Additionally, processing flexible substrates such as glass, metal, and polymer foils requires specific attention to defect management and control. This session calls for papers covering all aspects of flexible substrate processing, including defect management and high throughput processing with a focus on applications.

Session 5 - Film Growth, Process Control, and Model Based Concepts
Chairmen: Prof. Dr. B. Szyszka, Prof. Dr. Y. Shigesato

The need for the proper control of advanced material properties of multi component metal oxide films requires in-depth understanding of thin film deposition phenomena. The recent achievements in model based understanding of plasma processes and thin film growth phenomena open up new paths for the implementation of process control strategies. An important breakthrough in the last years was the sputtering of semi-conductive metal oxide films for TFT application where issues such as plasma damage of the film during growth must be prevented. This session focuses on recent achievements in film growth, process control, and model based concepts.

Session 6 - Energy Conversion, Saving, and Storage
Chairmen: Dr. W. DeBosscher, Mr. K. Kato

This session covers various energy related application areas of coatings. Active (e.g. smart switching) and passive (e.g. low-E) energy-saving coatings are essential and still in further development for architectural windows. Coating applications achieving energy generation and conversion e.g. from solar radiation (PV and thermal solar cells) will be discussed as well. In addition, a new emerging market of energy storage and the use in thin film battery applications will be presented.

Session 7 - Optics, Consumer Electronics, and Communication
Chairmen: Prof. Dr. N. Kaiser, Dr. G. Ockenfuß

High volume precision optical filters become more prevalent in our daily lives. This session focuses on precision interference filters used in consumer electronics, telecommunications and healthcare related devices. Examples are wearable and mobile devices using 3D depth, proximity, color, ambient light, UV and temperature sensors. In many cases optical filters are integrated into electronic and semiconductor components. Methods of integration could be optical bonding and wafer level processing/packaging. Other examples are filters, filter arrays and linear variable filters (LVFs) for miniature spectrometry or fluorescent and Raman spectroscopy.

Session 8 - Medical, Food, and Environmental Applications
Chairmen: Prof. Dr. W. Viöl, Dr. R. Trassl

Coatings on various substrates become increasingly important in both food and medical applications. The requirements range from extending the shelf life of packed food all the way to providing functional coatings, e.g. anti-bacterial coatings in medical applications or coatings for active medical devices like sensors. The focus is also on the environmental impact in terms of waste, energy and carbon footprint reduction as well as on the use of renewable or recyclable materials. This session will cover a wide range of processes from simple barrier coatings to sophisticated active devices in these areas, both on rigid as well as on flexible substrates.

Panel Discussion

Architectural Glazing
Chairmen: Dr. J. Trube , Dr. M. Mennig, Dr. V. Sittinger

Distinguished international panelists such as Dimitry Bernt from NSG Pilkington Glass, Russia, Prof. Dr. Sener Oktik from Şişecam, Turkey, Christoph Timm from SOM, USA, and Dr. Hartmut Wittkopf from EControl-Glas GmbH & Co. KG, Germany will discuss about major future trends in architectural glazing and façade elements with respect to innovative trends in design, functionality, sustainability, and new technologies.
