In recent decades, thin-film technology has made important contributions to high-performance manufacturing processes, electronics, photonics and life sciences, as well as to the transition from fossil to renewable energies. Due to their unique properties, 2D-materials have been repeatedly cited as «materials of the future» for ultrathin coatings. However, their integration into mass production processes raises several challenges. The annual event will bring exciting presentations on the latest developments in the world of ultrathin functional coatings and the integration of 2D-materials.

A day full of showcases & exchange of ideas

Showcases & best practices from NTN members, Technology impulses on the state of the art, Networking and Foyer-Exhibition
