Fraunhofer ISC opens up the potential of innovative materials for tomorrow’s products, focusing in particular on efficient and safe energy use, sustainable utilization of resources, affordable health care and novel solutions for information and communication technologies (ICT). Apart from new and enhanced materials, we are also developing the entire technologies, and the design of manufacturing processes tailored to specific production environments. We develop and license superior materials based on polymers, polymer composites, metal-oxides and inorganic-organic hybrid materials (ORMOCER®s) and the corresponding process techniques. These materials are adaptable for various applications and can be used on flexible displays, wafers, on foils in roll-to-roll process schemes, on backplanes or on individual optical components. They are characterized by widely adjustable optical and (di)electric properties and by outstanding thermal, chemical and mechanical stabilities.

Diffractive Optical Element DOE
Diffractive Optical Element (DOE) made by using Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP). As 2PP is a true 3D micropatterning technology, continuous-level DOE can be fabricated with free choice of pixel height, pixel count and pixel size. The depicted DOE is made of hybrid polymer which is specially designed for optical applications and can be replicated for mass production.
Array of aspheric microlenses fabricated by Two-Photon Polymerization. The lens geometry (profile function, height, radius, pitch, position on the substrate) can be chosen almost arbitrarily. Microlenses are fabricated from high performance hybrid polymer material with superior optical properties and high stability against radiation and temperature.
