Subject: VPHA status update 7.11.2019: November Networking ... and request to recommend ALD reviews

Dear VPHA contributors and prospective contributors,

With this email, I would like to update you recent progress around the interest area of the Virtual Project on the History of ALD (VPHA) since the previous VPHA status update on July 9.

1. “November Networking – ALD at Aalto University”. This is an event to be organized at Aalto University on November 29 afternoon, open for anyone to attend. In addition to local presentations and posters, there will be an international invited talk (Prof. Ruud van Ommen). If someone from the VPHA collaborators is interested to participate, you are most welcome to do so; poster presentation slots are still available (re-registration needed), and one can also come to network without any presentation. More info of the event and links below.

2. Request to recommend review articles on ALD. Along with November Networking – ALD at Aalto University (29.11.2019), the plan is to open an Aalto OpenLearning site related to Atomic Layer deposition, aimed to benefit the global ALD community. The site will start with small initially, mainly linking to existing contents, with the purpose to expand later in contents. The first original item to be created is a listing of recommended reviews on ALD.

To build a balanced, justified recommended reading list for ALD reviews, I welcome all VPHA contributors and prospective contributors (and others as well!) to write and share recommendations for their favourite ALD review(s) in recommended-ALD-reviews-evolving-file (it is a Google Docs file). More information in the blog post:, reposted from Catalysis Professor’s Open.

More info: November Networking – ALD at Aalto University

Rationale: At Aalto University, many research group’s activities have a connection to atomic layer deposition (ALD). The aim of November Networking – ALD at Aalto University is to provide a time and place where people with interest in ALD can meet each other and get better networked. All research groups working at Aalto with some connection to ALD are invited to introduce themselves in short presentations – what are the group’s capabilities, interesting recent results, and maybe challenges, too? Groups working with ALD outside Aalto University are likewise welcome to introduce themselves. Additionally, individual researchers (doctoral students, postdocs, …) can present their activities in a poster, with an optional 2-min oral poster pitch. Companies with ALD activities in Finland are also invited, and we will have an invited guest speaker from abroad.
