A short course on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) offers an introduction into ALD by providing the basics of ALD, giving an overview of the applications of ALD and describing why ALD has become so important in recent years. This course is open to people who are relatively new to the field of ALD, such as students and technologists and other people that work – or are planning to work – on ALD but who have limited knowledge of the technology. On Thursday 20 April this one-day course will take place at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Speakers include Prof. Gregory Parsons (North Carolina State University) and Prof. Erwin Kessels (Eindhoven University of Technology). This course takes place in conjunction with the 2nd Area Selective Deposition workshop (ASD 2017), which will be held on 21 April 2017 in Eindhoven.
