From: Puurunen Riikka < >Subject: VPHA status update 22.3.2017Date: 22 March 2017 at 21:37:12 GMT+2Cc: Puurunen Riikka < >, Sundqvist Jonas < >
Dear current and prospective VPHA contributors,This is the first VPHA status update in year 2017. For VPHA, this year has started with significant visibility: the review article published in JVSTA was the most read of all articles published in JVSTA. The previous VPHA status update was published on December 19, 2016. This update discusses the following topics:
- ALD history review article(s) in JVSTA
- Boulder & NanoSolutions & particle ALD -related ALD History Blog post + Weimer's guest post
- About the earlier ALD history activities + about VPHA's future
- Recent VPHA-related Wikipedia updates
- New affiliation by Puurunen (professor, Aalto University)
- Other posts in ALD History Blog (Pessa; ethics; PillarHall)
The VPHA off-topic (OT) communication below was sent to 76 VPHA co-authors and 47 prospective co-authors.

A few days ago, copies of two emails were publishedin the ALD History Blog, which have been recently sent to the authors of the 2013 ALD history review to update them regarding the latest progress in VPHA. That the post has been re-tweeted in Twitter tells that the material has been of interest to someone. Link to post: http://aldhistory.blogspot.fi/2017/02/copies-of-communications-to-earlier-ald.html
For completeness of info, in this post, an email is published from October 2013, where the authors of the then-new 2013 ALD history review were originally informed of and invited to participate in the then-recently started Virtual Project on the History of ALD.

For the next half year, I will work part time (60%, typically Wed-Fri) at Aalto University and part time (40%, typically Mon-Tue) at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The remaining work at VTT concentrates on the lateral high-aspect-ratio test structures (LHAR/PillarHall) in a "TUTL" project financed by Tekes.Associate professor (tenure track), Catalysis Science and Technology. Strong background and continued interest in Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD); aiming to build research e.g. with microreactors and in situ/operando measurements. "Work-hobby:" history of ALD; interested in open science approaches. Feb-Jul 2017 working 60% at Aalto University and 40% at VTT Technical Reseach Centre of Finland; from Aug 2017 on, full time at Aalto University. Open for new (and old!) collaborations.
