Polymer Replication on Nanoscale Conference at Fraunhofer IPT
The 4th international Polymer Replication on Nanoscale Conference took place on May 8 – 9, 2017, and was hosted by Fraunhofer IPT with support from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The conference focused on issues in large scale replication of nanostructures in polymeric materials and especially highlighted application oriented solutions for manufacturing. Magnus Orth from the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) was present at the conference and gave a presentation on, “Manufacture of optical micro-structures in plastics components through a multi-technology approach”, a project of his that was developed within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence.
Various presentations and a poster session allowed the participants to discuss the recent developments within the industry and talk about the challenge of applying the academic results in the industry. Orth especially praises the interesting and open exchange between the attendants and “the good overview over recent results in the field of micro-structured plastics components” the conference offered.
