ALD at SEMICON Europa 2018

This year was the first time in a long time that we did not organize an ALD Symposium at SEMICON Europa. We decided to keep it as a Dresden event and it will be held 10th of December (LINK) followed by a visit to the famous Dresden Christmas market..

This year, I was invited together with a number of other ALD people to present at the Materials session in the Tech Arena and there was a great program with impressive presentations chaired by Johan Dekoster from Imec.
