Enabling mass production of diffractive AR waveguides through high refractive index polymers

As augmented reality becomes more prevalent in the Technosphere, mass-market demand for this technology is ever-growing. Typically, diffractive AR waveguides are manufactured by imprinting surface-relief gratings in an optical-grade high refractive index (HRI) polymer, coated on a HRI glass wafer. In partnership with GermanLitho, mass production of diffractive waveguides has now been successfully demonstrated by producing a series of fully-populated, nanoimprinted 300 mm wafers with UV-curing high RI polymers by DELO Industrial Adhesives with great repeatability and structural uniformity.

In the webinar, the following topics will be covered by experts from GermanLitho and DELO:

  • What equipment for nanoimprint lithography (NIL) is available?
  • How do AR waveguide mastering and upscaling work?
  • What challenges come with AR waveguide manufacturing?
  • What properties do high refractive index polymers for NIL have?
  • What results can I expect when mass-producing AR waveguides on a 300mm wafer?
  • What other polymer solutions for AR waveguide manufacturing do exist?

Achieving energy efficiency through light fixation in electric motor assembly

These days, production of electric motors requires high levels of energy consumption for use cases such as the assembly of parts, inserting magnets into rotors, or connecting the stator to the stator housing.
DELO adhesives can help reduce energy use (e.g., shortening processes which require an oven) and, in turn, reduce carbon footprint. In this webinar, we would like to go over how certain electric motor bonding applications, through light fixation, can help optimize your process chain.

Here you can find a brief list of topics that will be presented:

  • Application and adhesive process overview in electric motors
  • Performance comparison between traditional processes and energy-efficient light fixation
  • Energy savings potential in the production process
