BALD Engineering blogs about Tuomo Suntola's overview on ALD

Jonas Sundqvist from BALD Engineering has published a nice blog post discussing the ALD webpage of Dr. Tuomo Suntola, the Finnish inventor of ALD. See the full post at In the words of Jonas Sundqvist:

"I think that we all today have to thank Suntola and his co-workers like Sven Lindfors < > and others for making all this possible. Just think about it - would we all today enjoy living and working in a fast growing technological field of ALD without this work  that started in the 70´s and persisted through until it went global in the 90´s and beyond until today?"

In his webpage,, Suntola has nicely collected for other people's reference:
  • Links to works overviewing the development of ALD technology in Finland
  • Links to Suntola's recent presentations on ALD (latest is from summer 2015)
  • A list of Suntola's books and review articles on ALD
  • A list of Suntola's selected papers on ALD and thin films
  • A list of Suntola's selected conference presentations on ALD 
Suntola's full profile, pointing also to his other activities besides ALD, can be found at:

Suntola has throughout the VPHA supported the ALD history activities, of which we are very grateful. In addition to the general support, Suntola's contribution has been central in creating two of the outcomes of the VPHA, namely the "Suntola ALE essay" and the "FinALD40" exhibition (items #5 and #7 in the VPHA Publication Plan, v3). Links to these two outcomes:
