Advanced UV for life, by German ministry of Economics

Logo_Advanced-UV“Advanced UV for life” is a consortium founded by the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education an Research) within the programme „Zwanzig20- Partnerschaft für Innovation“. The consortium joins 29 universities, research institutes and industrial companies. "Advanced UV for life" aims at developing semiconductor light sources to open up new markets and expand existing ones for UV technology - from tailored semiconductor devices to assemblies and modules to the final application in the fields of medicine, water treatment, production and environment and life sciences. Until 2019 “Advanced UV for life” will be funded with up Logo_Zwanzig20_AF_01to 45 million euro.

SENTECH Instruments takes part in the development of the needed semiconductor technologies and devices in order to allow the production of the required light sources for the shorter UV wavelength range and the production technology for these UV light sources.

IPVEA, international photovoltaic equipment association

The International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) is an independent, non-profit organization of manufacturers and suppliers of photovoltaic (PV) fabrication equipment and related raw materials used in PV ingot, wafer, cell (crystalline and thin-film), and panel manufacturing.

The association’s member companies represent the wide spectrum of equipment and materials including that related to crystal growth, diffusion furnaces, glavanics, laminators, laser systems, materials handling, metallization, printing, process integration, solar simulators, substrate handling, testing, vacuum systems, waste gas abatement, wet chemical systems, and related materials and professional services.

IVAM, professional association for micro-mechanics

The IVAM is an international association of companies and institutes in the field of microtechnology, nanotechnology and advanced materials.

They regard themselves as the communicative bridge between suppliers and users of high-tech products and services in need of explanation in the fields of "microtechnology", "nanotechnology" and "advanced materials".
