2018 Millennium Technology Prize for Tuomo Suntola

Congratulations to Dr Tuomo Suntola who was awarded the €1m Millennium Technology Prize yesterday for the invention of ALD. Full details are in the announcement from Technology Academy Finland along with a video. A wonderful day for the nominators from the ALD community.

Here is a message from Dr Suntola: ”In the long run, I like to share the honor of the Millennium prize with all my colleagues having worked with me for the technology, the companies hosting and financing the development, and the co-operating universities and funding organizations supported the work. I like to thank all parties for the confidence and patience in getting through times when the goal looked distant. Finally, my special thanks go to the thousands of scientists and engineers who, finally, have made the technology a global success and an important part of our everyday life.”...
