A topical workshop with focus on industrialization and commercialization of ALD for current and emerging markets
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is used to deposit ultraconformal thin films with sub-nm film thickness control. The method is unique in the sense that it employs sequential self-limiting surface reactions for growth in the monolayer thickness regime. Today, ALD is a key technology in leading edge semiconductor technology and the field of application in other industries is increasing rapidly. According to market estimates the equipment market alone is currently at an annual revenue of US$ 1.8-1.9 billion (2018) and it is expected to double in the next 4-5 years. In a European context ALD was invented independently twice in Europe (Russia & Finland) and since the last 15 years Germany has grown to become one of the strongest European markets for ALD in R&D, chemicals, equipment and end users.
This year the 4th Workshop „ALD For Industry“ will be held in South Germany (Freiburg), much closer to the other ALD hubs in continental Europe in France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland. ALD for Industry provides the opportunity to get in contact with industrial and academic partners, to learn more about fundamentals of ALD technology and to get informed about recent progress in the field. The Event will focus on the current markets for ALD and addresses the applications in Semiconductor industry, MEMS & Sensors, Battery Technology, Medical, Display, Lightning, Barriers and Photovoltaics.
