Modular high-temperature reactor for the continuous synthesis of nanoparticles

Fraunhofer ICT-IMM presents a novel, modular reactor for continuous flow synthesis of nanoparticles at elevated temperatures. The reactor is capable of performing liquid-phase reactions at temperatures of up to 400 °C, common hot-injection synthesis protocols for the synthesis of nanomaterials can now be transferred from batch to continuous. Examples include organo-metallic syntheses as used for CdSe quantum dots (QDs), Pt and other metal nanoparticles, or oxide materials.

REACH and RoHS compliant thick-film paste portfolio

Power electronics is becoming a key technology for a rising number of products and systems due to a global trend to green energy and the establishment of electric mobility.
Our researchers now focus on high-performance and high-thickness screen-print pastes for AlN and Si3N4 as excellent buildup materials for power electronics and assemblies.
New additives, adopted organic vehicle, and modified manufacture technologies are used to tune properties such as the temperature coefficient of the resistor and adhesion strengths of solder joints. Our “Pastemeleon” awaits you on the booth!


Environmentally friendly water-based nanoparticle-printing inks and multilayerbased microsystems

Direct writing technologies like inkjet or aerosol printing for silver, copper, gold and platinum inks are promising methods to print contactlessly thin functional layers in order to realize optimized microelectronic devices such as circuit paths or heaters easily.
Fraunhofer IKTS develops those environmentally friendly water-based nanoparticleprinting inks for polymeric and ceramic substrates. The application of nanoinks for the wiring of surface mounting devices on low-temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC) as well as extremely robust ceramic multilayer acceleration sensors are examples of new technologies presented on the booth.

Magnetic field sensor

Fraunhofer ENAS will present a new type of spintronic magnetic field sensor with two-dimensional vector resolution for contact-free measurement of distances, speeds, and angles. The magnetic field sensor's functionality is based on the physical giant magnetoresistance (GMR) effect. Technologies such as PVD and plasma etching processes are employed for fabrication. Thanks to those micro- and nanotechnologies used, it is possible to attain a very high signal-to-noise ratio, very short response times, a high degree of miniaturization, and a very low level of energy consumption. The GMR sensor is also bio-compatible. Conceivable applications range from the aerospace and the automobile industry to the very latest devices in medical engineering.
