ALDpulse.com became active in Spring 2013. As seen from the screen capture, their vision was to become the Home of the ALD community and collect together varied information regarding ALD: ALD Basics, ALD Equipment suppliers, ALD Chemical suppliers, ALD Coating services, ALD-related equipment, and many other. A description of aldpulse.com was included in the FinALD40 exhibition material, accessible through aldcoe.fi website as well as vph-ald.com.

The information in the ALD Hall Fame in part triggered the VPHA activities (described in VPHA's article, in press in JVSTA as of Nov 26, 2016). The founder of aldpulse.com Annina Titoff helped VPHA to get started by publishing the original "Introduction and invitation to participate" and several announcements thereafter.
I personally would like to thank aldpulse.com for its contribution to the ALD community. Their most memorable part from my viewpoint will be the original Youtube interviews produced by aldpulse, e.g. of Suntola, Sundqvist, Barry, Ahonen and Ritala. I very much hope that this material will stay in Youtube after aldpulse.com stops.
The best of luck wished for the ALD Pulse Team in their new endeavours!

Dear ALD Community,
The last few years have been great! Filled with articles, events, interviews, and most importantly lots of enthusiastic people sharing the same interest and ALDPulse is forever grateful. This simple idea of a web where the ALD community could gather was great fun!
ALD Pulse team moves on to new waters and it is time to say good-bye.
We wish you the most Joyous Holiday Season 2016 and, of course, all the best in your ALD-ventures.
ALD Pulse Team"
