About the speakers

Wiebke Langgemach

Dipl.-Ing. Wiebke Langgemach

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, Dresden, Germany

Wiebke Langgemach is coordinating the ultrathin glass business field at the Fraunhofer Institute for Electron Beam and Plasma Technology (FEP) within the department of plasma coating/sheet-to-sheet technologies. Since 2018, her research focuses on coating and properties of ultra-thin glass with a special focus on its mechanical characterization. Before that, she studied Ceramics, Glass and Building Materials at the TU Bergakademie in Freiberg.

Dr. Steffen Günther

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, Dresden, Germany

Born in 1974, Steffen received his PhD in 2007 at Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany. He is working at Fraunhofer Institute for Electron beam and Plasma technology FEP. Starting at year 2000 investigating rf-driven glow discharge plasmas for roll-to-roll treatment of polymers, later on he moved towards plasma assisted evaporation technologies for food packaging and electrical applications. Around year 2010 sputtering technologies in combination with PECVD become additional areas of investigation for high barrier applications, electronic and optical applications. Since 2015, he is heading the group for roll-to-roll wet coating and electron beam curing. Within the last years, he and his team were faced by questions from a broad range of research and development areas. Examples are modification of polymers by electron beam irradiation for monomaterial packages, highly productive sterilisation of large area flexible products by electron beams in non-sterile environments and coating of substrates for technical or decorative purposes. Over the years, he filed more than 60 patents in the field of coating technologies.

Dr. habil. Lars Rebohle

Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf
Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Material Research, Semiconductor Materials / Helmholtz Innovation blitzlab, Dresden, Germany

Lars Rebohle is coordinating the Helmholtz Innovation blitzlab that deals with the dissemination and the technology transfer of short-time thermal treatment methods, namely flash lamp annealing. He studied and graduated in Physics at the TU Dresden and the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. In addition to flash lamp annealing, his research is focused on the doping of semiconductors and the crystallization and phase formation in thin film materials.

Dr Jacques Kools

Encapsulix SAS, France

Jacques Kools is founder and CEO of Encapsulix SAS, a provider of Atomic Layer Deposition Thin Film Encapsulation (ALD-TFE) equipment. He started his career as a research scientist at Philips Research Labs , Eindhoven , The Netherlands, followed by an extensive experience in the Semiconductor Capital Equipment Industry in Silicon Valley, most recently as Vice President Technology at Veeco Instruments. Since 2005, he has been based in the South of France, on an entrepreneurial path.
Dr Kools holds a PhD in technical physics from TU Eindhoven.

Holger Gerdes

Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST

Holger Gerdes, a physicist, graduated in 2004 from Technical University, Braunschweig. He conducted research in microtechnology at the Leibniz University, Hannover, specializing in magnetic sensors and actuators fabrication using photolithography, sputtering, and electroplating. Since 2008, he has been a staff scientist at Fraunhofer Institute, Braunschweig. He worked on functional materials development, particularly thin film strain gauges, utilizing vacuum plasma processes. From 2015 to 2021, he focused on highly ionized plasma technologies like HIPIMS and microwave-PECVD. Currently, as a project leader, he emphasizes reactive sputtering processes, including reactive HIPIMS, and drives digital transformation initiatives in vacuum deposition processes.
