Scintillates are one of the oldest types of radiation detector because initially measurements could be made with photographic film. Images could be collected, or intensity measurements made. Measurements could even be made with the human eye observing the brightness of frequency of flashes in the scintillator. Nowadays, the light output is converted into data that are processed using compact photodiodes. Scintillators come in different types, and in this edition of the blog, we look at Beneq’s ALD encapsulation solutions.

In this technical blog we describe how ALD can be utilized for coating high curvature optics using spherical domes as an example. The challenge when coating 3D optics is to deposit the coating with high uniformity over an arbitrary topology in a simple manner. ALD has proven its suitability for high precision pinhole free films, where the challenge is not only to achieve uniformity over a large scale, but to coat conformally over high aspect ratio structures.

In industrial applications, and specifically in semiconductor processing equipment applications, damage and failure of metal components results from exposure to reactive chemicals. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) offers qualities that enable the deposition of high-quality anti-corrosion barrier layers.

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is an unmatchable moisture barrier and encapsulation solution for electronics and semiconductor components. The ultra-thin ALD moisture protection can be applied in different phases of the production process: wafer-level, chip-level, package or module-level, and/or Assembled Printed Circuit Board (PCBA) level.

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is truly the ultimate moisture barrier. With ALD, it is possible to create moisture barriers that are thinner and keep humidity and vapors out better than other hermetic packaging options. ALD offers the only way to create conformal ultra-thin protective coatings on surfaces with high aspect ratios and complex 3D shapes. ALD is also a great solution for encapsulating sensitive surfaces.
