Roll-to-roll ALD chamber
Continuous ALD processing is needed for example in the fields of flexible, printed electronics, OLED lighting, third generation thin film photovoltaic devices, high energy density thin film batteries, smart textiles, organic sensors, organic/recyclable packaging materials, and flexible displays, to name a few. The printed electronics market alone has been estimated to increase 4-fold in the next five years alone, and well over 20-fold in the next 15 years. The key challenge in printed electronics is to find a flexible, reliable, and low-cost encapsulation material to protect the sensitive devices from ambient atmosphere (moisture, gases, impurities) to extend their lifetime and ALD oxides, namely aluminium and titanium oxides have shown excellent performance in this. Thus, printed electronics is definitely one of the most promising near future application areas for ALD.
Picosun's novel, revolutionary roll-to-roll ALD technology extends the already unmatchedly versatile PICOSUN™ ALD equipment portfolio and it is one of the most highly requested and welcomed additions to Picosun's capabilities as the leading provider of ALD technology. PICOSUN™ roll-to-roll ALD chamber is available for all, both old and new PICOSUN™ R-series ALD reactors.
