The 20th International Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD 2020) featuring the 7th International Atomic Layer Etching Workshop (ALE 2020) will take place Monday, June 29–Wednesday, July 1, 2020. This annual meeting focuses on the science and technology of atomic scale processes, which are essential in advanced chipmaking. The virtual meeting format will include live daily presentations, as well as on demand (recorded) sessions.
Lam is pleased to support research and industry learning in ALD and ALE through our gold sponsorship. Several of our technologists will be serving as moderators, including Dennis Hausmann, Adrien LaVoie, and Thorsten Lill.
You can hear about some of the latest advances from Lam and our collaborators at the following presentations.
