HSINCHU CITY, Taiwan and ESPOO, Finland, 23rd March, 2015 – National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Taiwan, and Picosun Oy, the leading provider of high quality Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) solutions for global industries, establish a Joint Industrial ALD Research Laboratory at the premises of X-Photonics Interdisciplinary Center at NCTU to enable the next generation of micro- and optoelectronics using ALD technology.
With this collaboration NCTU and Picosun will develop a wide range of interdisciplinary technology solutions for applications such as microelectronic devices for 7 nm technology node, high-brightness light emitting diodes (HBLED), and high electron mobility transistors (HEMT). Both fundamental research and advanced device fabrication for industrial applications will be the core objectives of the Joint Industrial ALD Research Laboratory.
“It’s obvious that Picosun, with their world-leading experience in ALD system design and process knowhow, has been chosen as our ALD technology provider. We are happy and excited to start this collaboration to realize a whole new generation of micro- and optoelectronic products. Based on the energy of NCTU in the semiconductor field, I think we will achieve lots of success in the near future,” summarizes Professor Hao-Chung Kuo, Associate VP of NCTU, and both IEEE and OSA fellow.
“Taiwan is one of the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturing hubs. Picosun’s state-of-the-art ALD technology is a key enabler for advanced micro- and optoelectronics fabrication. Establishing a partnership and a joint research laboratory with NCTU will provide our existing and future industry customers not only local access to our technology for their applications, but also stronger collaboration ties for future generation products enabled by our ALD technology. This is further supported by our newest subsidiary, Picosun Taiwan, which was established two months ago,” states Dr. Wei-Min Li, CEO of Picosun Asia and Applications Director of Picosun Group.
Picosun provides the most advanced ALD thin film technology and enables the industrial leap into the future by novel, cutting-edge coating solutions, with four decades of continuous expertise in the field. Today, PICOSUN™ ALD systems are in daily production use in numerous major industries around the world. Picosun is based in Finland, with subsidiaries in USA, China, Taiwan, and Singapore, and a world-wide sales and support network.
