Description

Presentation of thin film ALD research done in ASTRaL laboratory at Lappeenranta University of Technology's campus in Mikkeli, Finland

ASTRAL • • • Advanced Surface Technology Reseach Group A material science research group at Lappeenranta University of Technology Located in Mikkeli, Finland

Main research areas Thin film deposition techniques and applications, particularly for nanoscale structures: Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) • • • • • Conformality Uniformity Thickness control Hermeticity Ability to form nanolaminates

ALD – Atomic Layer Deposition Atomically precise control of material layer thickness, composition and structure

ALD – Atomic Layer Deposition Chemical vapor deposition method with sequential self-limiting gassolids reactions First atomic layer onto substrate is formed by chemisorption (in ideal case), second layer with chemical reaction Materials are built up one atomic layer at a time (cycle) (In practice, due to the size of the molecules (steric hindrance), less than 1 mono layer may be formed at a time)
