ASM and IMEC are proud to announce that the 4th Area Selective Deposition (ASD) Workshop will be held on April 4th – 5th, 2019 in IMEC, Leuven (Belgium).

This workshop will bring together leading experts from both academia and industry to share their vision and results on ASD. Based on a series of successful workshops at the: North Carolina State University in 2018, Eindhoven University of Technology in 2017 and IMEC in 2016, the two-days program will include invited and contributed speakers, a poster session and a reception on the evening of April 4th.

The workshop will cover a wide range of topics, including the following:

Area selective epitaxy and area selective chemical vapor deposition: processes and mechanisms, defects control

Intrinsic selectivity of ALD processes: nucleation and interface studies, chemical selectivity in surface reactions, competitive adsorption, precursors design, modeling of surface reactions

Methods for area selective activation / deactivation: use of inhibitors (self-assembled monolayers, polymers), plasma-/beam-induced activation

Processes and mechanisms for area selective atomic layer deposition: deposition of metals or dielectrics, thermal/plasma enhanced ALD, 3D or patterned substrates, substrates preparation, sequential deposition/etching,

Metrology and defects control:
surface characterization techniques, selective etching of defects

Applications of area selective deposition:
semiconductor industry (integration needs of device makers, solutions proposed by the equipment makers), catalysis, energy generation and storage, etc.

On behalf of the organizing committee, it will be our pleasure to welcome you in Leuven.

Andrea Illiberi

Program chair of the 4th ASD workshop
