Efficient surface passivation of black silicon using spatial atomic layer depostion

In this work we show that surfaces of nanostructured silicon (black silicon, b-Si) can be passivated with Al2O3 using industrially viable line speeds in a prototype Spatial ALD reactor Beneq SCS 1000. Charge carrier lifetimes up to 1.25 ms were obtained, which were slightly higher than with temporal ALD
passivation on similar wafers (0.94 ms).

Beneq Roll-to-Roll ALD in Practice

The demand for flexible ultra-high moisture barrier films can be met with roll-to-roll (R2R) atomic layer deposition (ALD). Here the deposition of Al2O3 barriers on polymer films with a Beneq WCS 600 R2R ALD system is shown. The obtained water vapor transmission rates (WVTR) were below the detection limit of 5 * 10-4 g/m² /day of Mocon Aquatran 1 (38 °C /90% RH) on PEN.

Anti-reflective coatings for laser wavelengths

Optical applications by Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) are demonstrated by anti-reflective coatings at laser wavelengths. Three wavelengths spanning from deep ultraviolet (266 nm) to visible (633 nm) and infra-red (1064 nm) regions are presented.

Atomic layer deposition into ultra-high aspect ratio structures with a stop-flow ALD reactor

The structures requiring conformal thin films are continuously becoming more demanding. New technical solutions are needed to meet the requirements. Here the growth of ALD Al2O3 and TiO2 in ultra-high aspect ratio structures is shown with a Beneq TFS 200 ALD reactor equipped with a high aspect ratio stop-flow module. The highest achieved aspect ratios for ALD Al2O3 and TiO2 films were 1:3000 and 1:2000.
