Date – 25th of May 2023
Description and target audience – A full day course to learn the fundamentals of atomic layer deposition (ALD). The aim is to provide both in-depth mechanistic understanding as well as to provide practical information how to run ALD processes in a laboratory or industrial setting. The target audience are newcomers to the field and engineers/scientists/professionals who want to get a better understanding of the fundamental aspects underlying ALD.
Topics that will be covered include, but will not be limited to: ALD surface chemistry; ALD configurations, processes and materials; precursors and co-reactants, ALD process design and reactor aspects, nucleation and initial growth during ALD, conformality and uniformity of ALD, etc.
Instructors – The course will be given by:
- Prof. Gregory Parsons – North Carolina State University, U.S.A.
- Prof. Séan Barry – Carleton University, Canada
- Prof. Erwin Kessels – Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands
Course material – The course material will be provided during the course. Some course material will be made available for download here (password-protected)
Program – The program runs from 9:00 to 17:00 consists of 7 sessions. The day ends with drinks. A tour to the NanoLab@TU/e clean room and other ALD labs is optional.
The preliminary program schedule is:
|09:00||09:15||Welcome and opening|
|17:00||18:00||Drinks (optional: lab tour)|
Venue – The courses will take place at the campus of the Eindhoven University of Technology in the theater hall of the Grand Café De Zwarte Doos (https://www.dezwartedoos.nl/homeeng, here you can also find the directions).
