Living Glass Surfaces XI - Year of Glass

(14-15 September 2022, Ilmenau Germay)

In the United Nations International Year of Glass (IYoG2022), Living Glass Surfaces at TU Ilmenau will provide information on current developments and emerging trends with respect to controlled changes of glass surfaces. A special focus will be glass materials in context with micromachining processes. We would like to discuss a wide range of surface related topics regarding corrosion or defined etching, masking vs. sealing as well as micro- and nano forming.
How can we use knowledge of glass surfaces for control of surface machining processes? How to apply it for future devices?
The event will feature talks and posters from glass experts of academia and industry. A hybrid presenting option will bring together in-person and virtual attendees.

Deadline for submission: 15 July 2022

We encourage everyone interested on the topic to contribute with their knowledge and expertise. Authors are requested to send the title and a half page abstract in German or English to
