Oy, Finland-based global manufacturer of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) reactors
for micro- and nanotechnology applications, organizes its first ever World Forum
in the Greater Helsinki area of Finland from June 9th to 10th.
Mr. Juhana Kostamo, Managing Director of Picosun
Starting today, Picosun World Forum 2009 gathers Picosun's own personnel and
personnel from its global network of sales representation for a two day dive
into the world of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), its fascinating past and glorious
Certain highs on the agenda of Picosun World Forum would easily be the envy
of any ALD-related conference. The inventor of the ALD method, Dr. Tuomo Suntola
goes through 35 years of ALD development from the very first nucleus of an idea
to the grand visions for future. Dr. Suntola is a shareholder and a member of
the Board of Directors of Picosun.
A legend of ALD equipment design, Picosun's Chief Technology Officer Mr Sven
Lindfors explains the evolution of ALD hardware in his presentation titled "Fifteen
Generations of ALD Reactors". Mr Lindfors is the only person in the world
who has been instrumental in realizing each and every one of the 15 ALD reactor
generations thus far. Dr. Suntola: "Sven seems to know intuitively what
works and what does not work in ALD reactor technology. I do not know another
person with the same rare qualities." Sven Lindfors is a shareholder and
a founder of Picosun. He is also member of the Board of Directors of the company.
Professor, Dr.Tech Lauri Niinistö is one of very few true pioneers of
the scientific study of ALD in academia. He has been instrumental both in his
own country and globally in starting ALD research and expanding its meaning
as one important field of non-organic chemistry. Professor Niinistö addresses
the participants of the World Forum explaining the latest in ALD processes and
applications. Professor Niinistö is a shareholder and a member of the Board
of Directors of Picosun.
Mr. Juhana Kostamo, Managing Director of Picosun, together with other key people,
such like Picosun's U.S. director Dr. Charles M. Dezelah, Picosun's Technical
Application Manager, Dr. Kai-Erik Elers, and the Managing Director of Altech
Alt Co of Japan, Mr. Hiroshi Sato, will study the global ALD market and Picosun's
apparent formula for success in their presentations.
"Picosun is immensely proud in being able to invite our global sales network
to the beautiful city of Helsinki and its surroundings. Thus far, the global
recession has not been felt too much at Picosun. Picosun represents the brightest
of the latest in the field of ALD technology and clearly benefits from its unique
position, regardless of global business trends," explains Juhana Kostamo.
"In any given business environment, success comes from being able to look
at the horizon, identify what is coming next, and act decisively on that information.
In technology, scientific institutions and business enterprises which keep abreast
with the cutting edge of tomorrow's demands will emerge as winners from the
deepest of recessions. Picosun is very happy to count such players as its customers,"
Juhana Kostamo says.
