We are one of 67 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe's largest applied research organization. The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP is located in Dresden and focuses on developing technologies and processes for surface modification.
Our core technologies are sputtering technology, plasma-activated high-rate deposition, high-rate PECVD, and electron beam technology, which we use to develop surface technology solutions for various industrial tasks.
The deposition of individual layers and multilayer systems and the processing of surfaces are of huge practical importance for many industries. Regardless of whether for machine building, the utilization of solar energy, the packaging industry, biomedical engineering, optics, sensor technology, or electronics: We develop suitable processes and technologies and the associated technological key components.
Feasibility studies, to evaluate surface coating and processing, and pilot production, to facilitate the introduction of new customer products to the marketplace, are also included in our range of services.
The scaling up of technologies to industrial quantities and integration into suitable plant technology and into existing production processes are key services of the Fraunhofer FEP. The cost efficiency of a technology for industrial production is always taken into account.
Our comprehensive know-how allows us to support the research and development work of our customers from the concept phase right through to industrial realization.
