Clear advantages: Integrating metal microstructures in glass
safe from harsh environmental conditions, electrically and thermally conductive, and with great lithographic resolution: Embedding thin metal microstructures in glass promises exceptional properties for a range of applications. The technology could be used to create sensor components that are corrosion-proof, dimensionally stable, and reliably functional even in extremely rugged environments. A technique developed at Fraunhofer IZM offers a new way of integrating electrically conductive elements in glass, with the metal microstructures not deposited on the surface, but embedded and encased in the glass itself.
