Membership European Society of Thin Films (EFDS) September 11, 2019

Since the beginning of September 2019, boltzplatz is a member of the European Society of Thin Films (EFDS). This will allow us to take part in the several working groups and connect with companies and research institutes in the vacuum coating industry.

Applications: Electromagnetics & Space June 9, 2019

To give you an idea of our capabilities in the field of hypersonic flow simulation and electromagnetic interaction, we summarized some of our previous work as PhD students:

3D Simulations of Gyrotron Resonator Devices

Flow Simulation of Atmospheric Entry at Titan

EXIST Business Start-up Grant March 23, 2019

In the time frame April 2019 up to March 2020, boltzplatz will be supported by the EXIST Business Start-up Grant. EXIST is a support programme of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF).

Participation working group space2motion January 29, 2019

boltzplatz will participate in the working group meeting of the INNOspace® network space2motion at HEGGEMANN AG on January 31, 2019. The meeting will focus on topics of manufacturing (e.g. coating processes) as well as topics of product development (e.g. simulations). We are looking forward to interesting discussions with the network partners.

PICLas Logo PICLas is open-source December 4, 2018

PICLas, the multi-purpose plasma dynamics code, was released under the GNU General Public License v3.0 on If you are interested in an application of the code and require technical support, additional physical modelling and/or specific extensions, make sure to contact us!

INNOspace®-Network space2motion November 18, 2018

Since the beginning of November, we are part of the INNOspace®-Network space2motion. It’s a platform for the technology exchange between the space and automotive industry. We are looking forward to future collaborations!

Upcoming visit of the innolution valley November 13, 2018

Thanks to the TTI GmbH and M.Tech Accelerator, we were invited to participate at the innolution valley in Ludwigsburg – an innovation and start-up festival. If you are also there, make sure to drop by at our booth #2-154-53. See you there!

Visit of the new.New Festival October 17, 2018

As part of the M.Tech Accelerator, we were able to participate at the new.New Festival in Stuttgart. Besides the pitch, many opportunities arose to network with fellow start-ups and industry partners. Image: Asim (left) and Stephen (right) in front our booth.

boltzplatz is now part of the TTI GmbH July 8, 2018

Starting from the 1st of July, 2018, we are part of the Technologie-Transfer-Initiative GmbH (TTI GmbH, an initiative of the University of Stuttgart supporting startups and entrepreneurship) as a Transfer- und Gründerunternehmung (TGU). As a TGU, we can focus on first pilot projects with the backing of the TTI GmbH. Image: TTI GmbH

Surface_Technology Visit of the SurfaceTechnology Germany June 24, 2018

boltzplatz visited the SurfaceTechnology Germany in Stuttgart to see if there is a demand to simulate processes such as Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD). After talking to many surface coating companies, we got an overall positive feedback and gathered important contacts, we are following up now. Image: Deutsche Messe
