ALD Academy on Nucleation and Area-Selective Deposition

There will be an ALD Academy on Nucleation and Area-Selective Deposition at Eindhoven University of Technology on April 3, 2019, the day before the 4th Area Selective Deposition workshop (ASD2019) in Leuven, Belgium ( For those interested in both events, there will be transportation from Eindhoven to Leuven.

Area-selective deposition (ASD) has recently developed into an active field of research in both academia and industry, triggered by the fact that alignment is becoming a bottleneck in semiconductor fabrication. Especially area-selective atomic layer deposition (ALD) is acquiring attention for implementation in self-aligned fabrication schemes. This development builds on earlier successes in the fields of selective epitaxy and area-selective chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Besides nanoelectronics, ASD is expected to enable bottom-up fabrication in catalysis, energy generation and storage.

This ALD Academy is an introduction to ASD, and addresses fundamental aspects related to initial growth, nucleation mechanisms and...

Joint International Conference EuroCVD 22-Baltic ALD 16

The EuroCVD 22-Baltic ALD 16 Conference, organized by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), will take place in Luxembourg on 24-28 June 2019.
The conference will offer a high-quality scientific programme with invited and contributed lectures in key development areas based on chemical processing from the gas phase.
The submission of extended abstracts is open up to the 21st of January 2019 via the tool available on the conference website (

Deadline for the submission of extended abstract (31 January) is approaching.


The main session will address technology perspectives that are common to participants with different backgrounds: CVD or ALD specialists, physicists or chemists, experts or early career researchers, fundamental/applied scientists or industrial researchers. Each of these sessions will be introduced by an invited presentation from a pioneer in the field.

Simulation and in situ monitoring to generate theoretical models,...


Nano-Optics International School. Feb 2019. Call Abstracts. Early Bird Registration.

Venue International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL),Braga, Portugal

The 2nd Edition of IUVSTA NANO OPTICS School ha been organized to provide the rare opportunity to learn from and interact with some of the top experts in the field, both from academia and from companies. Ph.D. and master students are encouraged to attend the School and present their research work. Strong interaction between lecturers and students will be promoted during the entire school. Sessions on “Science Communication” and  on “Project Management” oriented for students and young researchers are included in the programme. A guided visit to the INL laboratory is included in the programme.
