Abstract:
ESPOO, Finland, and LUND, Sweden, May 14, 2009 - Leading Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) systems manufacturer Picosun Oy, Finland, won public tender to deliver state-of-the-art ALD system to the University of Lund, Sweden. SUNALE(TM) R-100 ALD reactor has now been installed. The phase of acceptance tests was carried out in a record time of five days only.

Picosun wins public tender to integrate glove box with ALD system at Lund University

ESPOO, Finland, and LUND, Sweden | Posted on May 14th, 2009

The evaluation group, set up by the Division of Solid State Physics, Faculty of Engineering of the University of Lund, praises the technical specifications of the Picosun SUNALE(TM) R-100 ALD reactor. The design of the reaction chamber, and gas system were deemed to be advantageous. Separate gas inlets may reduce cross-contamination; easily removable hot-wall reaction chamber, three-way valves for gas lines, and other such innovations in the design of R-100 were noted as winning features by the evaluation group.

An important novelty in Picosun's design was the integration of the ALD system with a glove box to enable handling samples in oxygen- and water-free atmosphere, an important precondition allowing the creation of high-quality interfaces on, e.g. III-V materials. "This special feature together with good technical concept of the ALD machine was clearly a decisive factor in our decision making process," says Dr. Ivan Maximov of Lund University.

"Besides, the SUNALE R-100 machine has an automatic lift arm and software with a touch screen interface, which simplify operation of the system. The system from Picosun Oy offers technically more favorable solution," the evaluation group states in their final award document.

Also, in terms of cost/quality/performance, the Picosun package offered most to the experts in Lund.

The University of Lund is one of the most ancient universities in Europe. In the year of its foundation, 1666, it was the fourth in the then empire of Sweden, preceded only by the universities of Uppsala (1477), University of Tartu (1632, in today's Estonia), and the University of Åbo (1640, today in Helsinki, Finland). The University of Lund, with its 40,000 students and 6,000 staff is consistently evaluated as one of the best 100 universities in the world.

Picosun, the Swedish ALD science community plus ALD experts from other European countries will meet at the Baltic ALD 2009 conference at the Ångström Laboratory of the University of Uppsala 15 - 16 June 2009.
