ALD-related hashtags

  • #ALD2015 - International ALD 2015 conference, Portland, Oregon USA http://www2.avs.org/conferences/ALD/2015/index.html. (Hints for first usage credit welcome - not easy to track back because #ALD2015 has multiple meanings in Twitter). See also #AVSALD and #AVSALD2015.
  • #ALD2016 - International ALD 2016 conference, Dublin, Ireland, July 2016, http://ald2016.com/. (Hints for first usage credit welcome - not easy to track back because #ALD2016 has multiple meanings in Twitter, e.g. African Liberation Day 2016). See also #ALD16.
  • #ALDALE2017 - 17th International conference on Atomic Layer Deposition ALD2017 featuring the 4th International Atomic Layer Etching Workshop ALE2017 (hashtag by @jfcon and @rlpuu, Nov 10, 2016)
  • #ALDCoE - Finnish Centre of Excellence in Atomic Layer Deposition, http://www.aldcoe.fi/ (hashtag by @rlpuu, May 2014)
  • #ALDep - Atomic Layer Deposition. Has obtained general acceptance and is in wide use (as of July 2016). Hashtag proposed by @rlpuu, Jan 2014.
  • #ALDconformality - scientific papers on the analysis of conformality of ALD. Proposed by @rlpuu, Dec 20, 2016. 
  • #ALDepQuote - Memorable quotes related to atomic layer deposition, from all people in all times. Hashtag created by @rlpuu Oct 15, 2016. 
  • #ALDRussia - ALD Russia workshop (first one in 2015). Conference website originally http://ald-conf.ru/, after the conference, material has apparently moved to http://ald-conf.ru/ald-russia-2015.html. Hashtag proposed by @rlpuu, June 2015.
  • #ALEtch - Atomic Layer Etching (hashtag by @tommikaariainen, May 2015)
  • #AVSALD - Hashtag for the International ALD conference, organized by / with support of American Vacuum Society (AVS). Started for Kyoto 2014 http://www.ald2014.org/; hashtag proposed by @hacp81, June 2014. This hashtag was meant to provide continuation for tweeting the international ALD conference series, but did not manage to get wide acceptance. Was used partly for ALD 2015, and almost not at all for ALD 2016. Could be re-introduced for ALD 2017, knowing the mix-up issues with #ALD2014 #ALD2016?
  • #BalticALD - International Baltic Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition (hashtag by @rlpuu, Jan 2014)
  • #ChinaALD (hashtag by @rlpuu, Oct 26, 2016)
  • #cvdald17  - EuroCVD-BalticALD 2017 (hashtag by @jv3sund, Nov 29, 2015)
  • #CVDep - Chemical Vapor Deposition (hashtag by @hacp81, Jan 2014)
  • #FinALD40 - Exhibition "40 Years of ALD in Finland - Photos, Stories" (hashtag by @rlpuu, April 2014)
  • #PEALD - Plasma Enhanced Atomic Layer Deposition (hashtag by @rlpuu, Jan 2014)
  • #PECVD - Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (hashtag by @rgmcorp, October 2010)
  • #suntolaquote - Memorable quotes by Tuomo Suntola (hashtag by @rlpuu, October 2016)
  • #VPHA - Virtual Project on the History of ALD (hashtag by @jv3sund, February 2014). #VPHA has multiple meanings in Twitter, so search for #VPHA brings along also other than #ALDep tweets.
  • #WikiALD - Wikipedia updates on Atomic Layer Deposition (hashtag by @aldhistoryblog i.e. @rlpuu, December 2015).
