Atomic Layer Deposition Reactor Manufacturer, Picosun, Gets Orders From US Universities

Published on June 4, 2008 at 1:34 PM

At the 2008 NSTI Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show held in Boston, Massachusetts, Finnish Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) reactor manufacturer Picosun Oy today announced three new orders for its flagship SUNALE™ R-series Advanced ALD research reactors from three leading U.S. universities.

“Picosun personnel possesses over 200 years of combined ALD experience. Company CTO Sven Lindfors has been designing ALD reactors continuously since 1975, and the actual inventor of the ALD method, Dr. Tuomo Suntola serves as Member of the Board of Directors of Picosun. With its unrivalled experience Picosun has been one of the best kept secrets of nanotechnology in recent years, but customer interest is now raising it to the forefront of the ALD explosion,” says Dr. Charles L. Dezelah, General Manager of Picosun´s U.S. operations.

“I am extremely happy of the speed with which Picosun´s North American business has taken off,” Charles Dezelah says. “Picosun´s U.S. office was opened less than a year ago. We have already installed ALD reactors at several customer locations in the U.S. Names of our three new customers will be published once their reactors have been installed and approved for use.”
