When we talk about ALD throughput, we must consider many different factors of the production setup. There is of course the deposition rate of the actual ALD process , but you should also consider the capacity of the chamber (the batch size) and the automation solutions. Things like heating the wafers to the process temperature and the cooling time after the processing matter a lot when we count the total throughput.

Due to the complex 3D shape of optical lenses, they cannot be coated with high uniformity using conventional technologies like PVD. The best way to conformally coat complex 3D shapes is with ALD technology. Optical ALD coating is created one layer at a time, resulting in pinhole-free conformal films.

The invisible ALD coatings are everywhere around us, but most people, even technology experts, don't know about them. Last week, we talked about the benefits of ALD coatings in batteries. In today's blog post we list some more examples of customer benefits of atomic layer deposition. Corrosion protection gives longer product life, encapsulation allows better product quality, buffer layers mean more efficient products that are cheaper to manufacture. And so on.

Customer benefits of atomic layer deposition: An ultra-thin ALD anti-corrosion coating on the critical battery parts increases the lifetime of advanced batteries. It has been shown with lithium-ion batteries (which are the most popular kind right now) that ALD coatings on the electrodes can significantly increase the product lifetime of the battery.
