Abstract:
Picosun Oy, Finland-based global manufacturer of state-of-the-art Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) systems predicts 2011 to become a year of major breakthroughs for many industrial scale applications of ALD.

Picosun Predicts Industrial Breakthrough For Ald In 2011

Espoo, Finland | Posted on December 23rd, 2010

"Year 2010 has been a remarkable year for the technique and science of ALD," says Kustaa Poutiainen, Picosun's Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO. "All through 2010 we have seen clear and increasingly convincing signs of a completely novel group of industrial customers emerge, all eager to learn from the unequalled experience Picosun possesses as the global ALD powerhouse."

"We are extremely pleased to have Dr. Tuomo Suntola, the inventor of ALD still play a crucial part as member of the board of directors of Picosun. Should anyone perform a paternity test to modern ALD, Dr. Suntola's scientific DNA would shine through from every sample. He is actively taking part in Picosun's tireless work developing ALD from something which shows great promise for tomorrow into today's mainstream industrial production technique opening bold visions for the future," Poutiainen says.

ALD is already in use in large scale production of semiconductors, has introduced itself properly in electronics and solar, and finds its way into many other fields and industries. Picosun recently joined a European group of first-tier scientific institutions and companies who are building cleaner chemical and pharmaceutical industry. "Cleantech as whole is clearly one major 2011 direction for a successful marriage of ALD and future technologies," Poutiainen emphasizes.

Spearheading the global move towards increasing utilization of ALD techniques in industrial production, Picosun will also continue its remarkable growth path as a company. Encouraged by sustained strong demand for Picosun SUNALE™ ALD systems the board of Picosun raised the forecast for 2010 - 2011 turnover significantly in its December session (Picosun's fiscal year is from May to April).

"Having a clear shot at reaching a size fifty times larger than what we were only a couple of years ago underline the quality, persistence and determination of people who have built the company: our staff and board members," Kustaa Poutiainen says. "Every person at every level of the company aims to be the very best in what he/she does so that Picosun and its products continue to be the best in the world both now and in the future."
