Decentralized control of belt conveyor systems

ITA | Both the drive technology and the belt technology of continuously operating conveyor systems in mining reach their technical and economic limits. In order to overcome them, scientists at ITA are developing a novel drive concept.

Research

Planning layout and transport system simultaneously

IPH | If companies would select a suitable transport system already during the factory planning stage, they can avoid subsequent adjustments and save a lot of time and costs. IPH is developing a software demonstrator for automated layout and transport system planning.

''Our goal is to develop high-performance optics for mass production''

PhoenixD | The Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD cluster (Photonics Optics Engineering – Innovation Across Disciplines) receives 52 million euros in federal and state funding. How the approximately 110 researchers are using this money, explain the cluster's executive board members, Professor Dr Uwe Morgner and Professor Dr Ludger Overmeyer.

Think optics research as an independent discipline

PhoenixD | Dr Reinhard Caspary is the technology coordinator of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD at Leibniz University Hannover. The graduate physicist and doctor of electrical engineering wishes the cluster members to develop a collective identity as "optics researchers".

Research

Printing complex glass structures in 3D using the laser

LZH | So far, 3D printing processes for glass materials have been rare. The LZH is developing a laser-based process for the Additive Manufacturing of glass components. Quartz glass components for optics and medical technology can be manufactured using laser deposition welding the future.

Adhesives be crazy – How to reckon with shrinkage

match | In the precision assembly of hybrid microsystems, the shrinkage of adhesives is undesirable because it causes internal stresses and assembly errors. A simulation model makes it possible to predict and counteract positional deviations.

New materials and metallization processes for optoelectronic components

IW | Which novel carrier materials are suitable for optoelectronic components – and how can they be provided with conductor paths and metallization? The Institute of Materials Science (IW) is investigating these questions in the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD.

Research

With plastic injection moulding to the optical platform

IMPT | Manufacturing of high-precision microsystems quickly and cost-effectively: This is what the IMPT is working on. Based on plastic injection molding and various coating techniques, an optical platform is being created.

Interdisciplinary research creates innovations

PhoenixD | Dr Marc-André Dittrich heads Task Group F2 – Expert Systems for Quality Control at PhoenixD. The interdisciplinary cooperation in the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD opens the doors for entirely new solutions.

Research

Data transmission with printed optical waveguides

ITA | Printed optical waveguides could replace electrical circuit boards in the future. This is demonstrated by scientists at the Institute of Transport and Automation Technology (ITA) in the PhoenixD Cluster of Excellence using the example of an optical decimal binary converter.

Research

Assembly without handling: self-assembly for precision optics

match | In order to position components for optical microsystems quickly and precisely, self-assembly techniques are the ideal solution. The Institute of Assembly Technology (match) is researching this innovative process in the PhoenixD cluster of excellence.
