Workshop: Fundamentals of ALD

Workshop on Fundamentals of Atomic Layer Deposition: Modelling and Validation

July 3rd 2019, TU Delft, The Netherlands


We are excited to announce a one day workshop at TU Delft on modelling and experimental analysis of ALD processes. We are hosting an international group of invited speakers who will present simulation and experimental work on fundamentals and applications of ALD. 

The workshop includes five invited sessions, one lecture on simulating ALD, lunch and a poster session.

Students are encouraged to bring posters to present their research to the community.
