ALD TECHNOLOGY & APPLICATIONS

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) Platform Technology

Forge Nano’s scaleable ALD technology lets you unlock the power of surface engineering for a range of applications and production volumes. Our products and world-leading experts can help maximize your product potential and uncover new sources of value.

What is Atomic Layer Deposition?

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is a surface engineering technique that creates angstrom-thick, uniform, pinhole-free coatings.

ALD is a thin film application technique that uses a sequential gas phase chemical deposition process. 

During this gas phase process, chemicals called precursors are introduced to the substrate to be coated. The chemical reactions caused by the precursors leave behind a one-atom thick coating. Repeating this process can build up multi-layers on nearly any surface.
