Last year we finished a project called “Taking plasma ALD to the next level” (funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), Applied and Engineering Sciences (AES) section). This project was devoted to obtaining a better understanding of plasma
In 2019 we wrote a blog post on the use of area-selective deposition (ASD) for the fabrication of Fully Self-Aligned Via (FSAV) structures and how this application could enable further downscaling in the semiconductor industry.

It is the time of the year that the annual AVS International Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition combined with the International Atomic Layer Etching Workshop takes place. The location of 18th edition of the ALD conference (ALD 2018) and the
A new paper from our group has just appeared in Advanced Material Interfaces. In this paper I – together with my colleagues, have reviewed the methods explored to achieve uniform atomic layer deposition (ALD) on graphene. The work is part
I recently successfully defended my PhD thesis, entitled “Atomic Layer Deposition of Metal Oxide Thin Films for Si Heterojunction Solar Cells”. As the title suggests, I have worked on ALD of various metal oxides for the application in Si heterojunction
