Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) offers a superior way to coat highly conformal, uniform, pinhole and defect free thin films on even the most challenging nanoscale architectures. The technique has tremendous potential in several fields of nano/microtechnology, for example in micro/optoelectronics, optics, catalyst manufacturing, corrosion protection, water purification, renewable and clean energy applications such as solar power, fuel cell/hydrogen/battery technology and innovative packaging materials. Picosun is a Finnish, globally operating ALD system manufacturer with world-wide sales and service organization. The company’s core business mission is to develop and manufacture ALD equipment which, with their uniquely scalable and flexible design, answer the needs of both the R&D field and those of high profile industries, thus bridging the gap between research and production and enabling yet more successfull nanotechnology solutions to tomorrow’s clean, sustainable and renewable energy technologies.
