Special Issue "Atomic Layer Deposition"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) has developed from its early beginnings in the Soviet Union and Finland into a process that is critical for microlectronics manufacturing and also extends into many other areas, for example, flexible electronics, displays, anti-corrosion layers, catalysis and pharmaceuticals. This Special Issue of Coatings on “Atomic Layer Deposition” is intended to cover original research and critical review articles on recent advances in all aspects of ALD.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- ALD processes for materials and devices;
- Characterization of ALD coatings;
- ALD nucleation, growth phenomena and process modelling;
- Applications of ALD;
- Spatial and roll-to-roll ALD processes.
