Company profile

As an innovative R&D partner the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST offers complete solutions in surface engineering which are developed in cooperation with customers from industry and research. The IST's 'product' is the surface, optimized by modification, patterning, and coating for applications in the business units mechanical engineering, tools and automotive technology, aerospace, energy and electronics, optics, and also life science and ecology. The principle technology units at the IST are low pressure plasma processes, chemical vapor deposition and atmospheric pressure processes. Based on cold atmospheric pressure plasma technology the Fraunhofer IST develops films, processes and tools in the fields of medicine, hygiene and medical engineering as well as in microbiology and cell culture technology. Experience with thin-film deposition and applications is complemented by capabilities in surface analysis and in simulating vacuum-based processes.

Regenerative medicine using plasma

3D-printed biocompatible support structures known as scaffolds play an important role in the field of regenerative medicine. They serve as the basis, for example, for producing biological tissue intended to support wound healing or minimize the risk of postoperative infection. Together with seven project more

Lab in a bag

Living cells are increasingly being used in modern therapy methods such as blood transfusions, stem cell therapies and bone marrow transplantations, or in the regeneration of severe burns. As the standard cultivation of these cells in open systems is associated with a high contamination risk, the Fraunhofer more

Atmospheric pressure plasma processes

Atmospheric pressure plasma processes are used primarily for activating and cleaning surfaces. The Fraunhofer IST presents new techniques which allow the appropriate modification or coating of different surfaces, even of three-dimensional substrates. The Fraunhofer IST offers a comprehensive range of more
