GlasTec – Miniaturized optofluidic and optoelectronic technology platform based on micro structured glasses and hybrid glass silicon substrates

Co-funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), AiF-ZIM

Duration: November 2015 – October 2017

Together with our partner Plan Optik AG, Fraunhofer HHI is developing miniaturized optofluidic systems in glass (Lab-on-Chip) as well as innovative optoelectronic systems based on structured glass-silicon wafer.

Goal is to increase the degree of function and on the same time to get a more compact design for different applications. The competences of Plan Optics are is the precise manufacturing of microchannel structures as well as a vertical integration of silicon structures in glass wafers. Fraunhofer HHI has the expertise for subsequent integration of 3D optical lightguide structures for photonics.
