The HERALD Summit will be the premier European conference in 2018 devoted solely to atomic level processing, covering atomic layer deposition (ALD), atomic layer etch and related nanofabrication techniques. As the final meeting of the HERALD COST Action, the three-day Summit will include detailed discussions on the research achievements of HERALD and on future opportunities for collaboration, both within Europe and worldwide. Ongoing projects and new funding proposals will be promoted so as to continue to build the ALD community. The HERALD Summit will take place in Braga, Portugal from 25-28 September 2018. Registration and abstract submission will open in May 2018.
The main topics will give a good overview of the areas of science on atomic level controlled processing.
- Mechanism, Metrology and Modelling ALD mechanisms.
- Precursors and Processes for viable ALD processes.
- Substrates and Interfaces: nucleation, 2D materials, selective area – ALD.
- Devices: integrate ALD processes for oxides, sulphides and nitrides, light emitting diodes
- Organic /Inorganic hybrid films: Molecular layer deposition, optimization of materials properties
