Plasma-assisted surface modification processes are widely applied in academic research and industrial processes nowadays, as they can offer scalability, rapid processing, and can treat a diversity of materials. However, achieving precise modifications in microfabrication, in particular using atmospheric-pressure plasmas, still presents challenges. Traditional methods involving masks limit
flexibility and can involve high costs, while treatment rates can be very low.

This talk presents a novel and flexible plasma printing technology developed at INP known as SurfAP3®, which introduces the highest resolution available for maskless atmospheric-pressure plasma processes, capable of producing structures starting at linewidth resolution of 40 µm. The technology's core, state-of-the-art atmospheric-pressure microplasma source (μAPPS), performs targeted surface processes with minimal gas flow and power, ensuring unique precision and efficiency, and allowing fine cleaning, activation, functionalization, crosslinking of thin films and layer removal operations, on multiple materials. SurfAP3® is a powerful platform that can open new applications across disciplines, including life sciences, materials development, printed electronics and enhanced additive manufacturing, among others.


Die übliche "Nachsitzung" im Anschluss an das Kolloquium wird für diese Veranstaltung im Traditionszimmer F4002 stattfinden. Snacks und Getränke werden bereitgestellt, und mit freundlicher Unterstützung vom Fachschaftsrat MN könnt Ihr euch einfach ein paar Spiele greifen und unseren Gast bei lockerer Atmosphäre kennenlernen!

Um die Planung für Snacks und Getränke zu erleichtern, bitten wir euch darum euch für diese Veranstaltung anzumelden. Ein Link zum Anmeldeformular wird in kürze an den Anfang dieser Seite gestellt.
