The Benefits of Using Particle ALD

Atomic layer deposition (ALD), in its various forms, is a way of coating a substrate with a thin film using a layer-by-layer (LbL) bottom-up approach. Whilst many of the substrates are larger surfaces, such as electrodes, it is also possible to coat nanoparticles using this route. This is referred to as particle atomic layer deposition, [...]

An Introduction to Particle ALD

Particle ALD is the use of Atomic Layer Deposition to coat individual particles as small as sub-micron diameters. ALD provides conformal coatings on particles (making what are sometimes referred to as nano-M&M’s®). The first reported occurrence of this was documented in the 1960’s, but since deeper exploratory research from Finland throughout the 1990’s it has [...]

The dawn of atomic-scale processing – The growing importance of atomic layer deposition and etching

http://www.atomiclimits.com/2017/07/03/the-dawn-of-atomic-scale-processing-the-growing-importance-of-atomic-layer-deposition-and-etching/ The dawn of atomic-scale processing – The growing importance of atomic layer deposition and etching A few weeks ago, the big news was that the research alliance of IBM, Global Foundries and Samsung unveiled the world’s first 5 nm chip as we could all read everywhere over the internet [1]. Most notable was however the [...]

What is Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)?

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a vapor phase technique used to deposit thin films onto a substrate. The process of ALD involves the surface of a substrate being exposed to alternating precursors, which do not overlap but instead are introduced sequentially. In each alternate pulse, the precursor molecule reacts with the surface in a self-limiting [...]

Improving the Performance of Lithium Ion Batteries with ALD Coatings from Forge Nano

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are rechargeable batteries, in which the lithium ions travel between electrodes (i.e. a cathode and an anode) in each charge-discharge cycle. These electrodes are important components in the Li-ion battery, but they eventually lose effectiveness due to Lithium ions becoming trapped or otherwise unusable, which is exacerbated by high temperatures and abusive [...]

The Processes Used to Deposit Nano-Scale Coatings: Sol-Gel, Co-precipitation, CVD, ALD and MLD

A nano-scale coating is the application of nanostructures on particles to provide various benefits. Nano-scale coatings can make surfaces water-repellent, less susceptible to degradation, more energy efficient, etc., without detracting from the primary function of the underlying material.  There are both liquid (Sol-Gel, Co-precipitation) and gas (CVD, MLD, ALD) phase processes that can be used [...]
