Introduction to Atomic Layer Deposition

This course is designed to provide the student the basics of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). The initial portion of the course covers the fundamental concepts involved in ALD, and how it relates to CVD. This includes growth of single crystal semiconductors, amorphous oxides, and metallic conducting films. Following these reviews, we cover the topic of radical-enhanced ALD, and how it enables reduced temperature deposition processes. Next we offer a brief review of various types of ALD reactors. Finally, we discuss the application of ALD to other technologies than microelectronics.

We offer this and all courses as On Site Training
