Globally, electronic device components are being pushed towards micro spatially demanding structures. With the gradual movement towards the limit of Moore’s Law, several research and development (R&D) programs are ongoing in pushing the limit of Moore’s law. Thin film deposition techniques aid the semiconductor industry in performing the same. It is a process of creating a thin layer on top of a substrate or on top of another ‘thin film’. The thickness of the films can range between nanometers to micrometers. Thin film deposition is currently in very high demand and enormous amount of R&D is also ongoing to develop the process further. It is currently being used for various different applications, such as printed electronics, energy generation, optical coatings and energy storage among others. Thin film deposition process can be broadly divided in to Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD). Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is considered to be a type of CVD. Both CVD and PVD have various different techniques, advantages and disadvantages. Additionally, continuing technological advancements, has led to the possibility of deposition of different materials on required substrates.
Growing application of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) thin film coating techniques in the fabrication of a variety of electronic devices and components in the semiconductor industry is one of the major driving factors of the market. ALD technique can also be used to encapsulate devices against oxygen, moisture, and impurities in order to ensure long and failure-free operation. Apart from this, ALD has potential applications in industrial production processes which include biocompatible coatings for medical applications, solar cell efficiency enhancement, anti-tarnishing of coins and jewelry, and powder-based catalyst materials among others.
