Picosun hires ALD specialists and adds to its advantage as thin film trailblazer

Espoo, Finland | Posted on February 22nd, 2010

"This is a clear signal to the markets: Picosun is adding to its advantage as ALD-specific thin film trailblazer," says Juhana Kostamo, Managing Director of Picosun. "Picosun has plenty of new, extremely interesting ALD applications projects in the pipeline. And so it should be; Finland is the ancestral home of ALD. Picosun, already before these latest hires, has more combined ALD experience than any other company in the world."

Dr. Wei-Min Li (born 1967) has over fifteen years of experience in thin film materials, processes and equipment for a wide range of applications in semiconductor, complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor, flat panel display, and photovoltaic industries. He has held multiple managerial roles in process/application management, sales and marketing, product platform development and project management. With Picosun he holds the position of Applications Manager
with emphasis on industrial applications. He is also active in Picosun's Asian sales operations. His Ph.D thesis from 2000 held the title "Characterization and Modification of SrS Based Blue Thin Film Electroluminescent Phosphors".

Dr. Satu Ek's Ph.D (Tech.) thesis (2004) carried the title "Controlled Deposition of Amino-functionalized Surfaces on Porous Silica by Atomic Layer Deposition". Prior to joining Picosun as Project Manager, responsible for EU projects, she (born 1972) has worked as an application scientist for a Finland-based high-tech company.

Dr. Tero Pilvi (born 1976) holds the position of Picosun's Sales Manager, Europe. Tero Pilvi's background is with the Laboratory of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Helsinki as a researcher. His Ph.D thesis (2009) was titled "Atomic Layer Deposition for Optical Applications: Metal Fluoride Thin Films and Novel Devices".

Interestingly, Dr. Pilvi also has a background as professional football (soccer) player. Between 1998 and 2001 he played in Finland, Sweden, Scotland and England. His most recent professional contract was with F.C. Cambridge United in Cambridge U.K (at the time 2nd Division of English Football League).

Mr. Juha Pihlman was also hired as new Finance Manager of Picosun.

Dr. Tuomo Suntola, inventor of ALD technology, is Member of the Board of Directors of Picosun. World's most experienced ALD reactor designer Sven Lindfors is Picosun´s Chief Technology Officer and founder of the company. Picosun Oy is a part of Stephen Industries Inc Oy.
