Picosun delivers production ALD systems to Asia for solid-state lighting device manufacturing
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) thin-film coating technology firm Picosun Group of Espoo, Finland has been chosen by a “major Asian customer” to deliver significant ALD production capacity for manufacturing of solid-state lighting devices.
Replacing thick, lower-quality coatings with ultra-thin but superior-quality ALD films can lead to not only material and energy savings but also longer end-product lifetime, says Picosun.
“ALD films enhance the performance and lengthen the lifetime of solid-state lighting devices,” says Edwin Wu, CEO of Picosun Asia Pte Ltd. “Our Picosun P-300BV ALD system is specifically designed for these applications. It combines fast batch production capacity with vacuum loading for the highest ALD film quality and purity,” he adds. “A facility of multiple P-300BV ALD tools that shall be installed in their premises will significantly strengthen our position in this [solid-state lighting] market.”
