Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)

ALD process is based on surface controlled thin film deposition. During coating, two or more chemical vapours or gaseous precursors react sequentially on the substrate surface, producing an amorphous solid thin film. ALD is an enabling technology offers precise control of the film thickness, at true nanometer scale. Pinhole free films for e.g., superior barriers, insulators and surface passivation.  Accurate and Conformal coating on large area substrates and complex 3D objects, including porous bulk materials.

TFS 200 is an Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) system from BENEQ, Finland. It belongs to the group of chemical vapour deposition methods.
