  • Sunday, April 29, 2018 - Tuesday, May 01, 2018

    Event: Area Selective Deposition Workshop (ASD'18)
    Location NC State University, Raleigh, NC
    Contact: Gregory Parsons; e-mail: gnp@ncsu.edu
    Web: https://asd2018.avs.org/

    The principal chemical processes and mechanisms that enable Area Selective Deposition (ASD) are rapidly becoming critical in several areas of materials and technological advancement. Most notably, the semiconductor industry will likely need new ASD processes to enable “chemical alignment” to complement traditional physical alignment (i.e. lithography) to allow transistors to scale to less than 10 nm dimensions. Other fields are also exploring chemical selectivity in materials to achieve precise targeted performance. Catalytic materials, for example, which are commonly employed to promote chemically selective reactions, are now being designed and constructed using site-selective deposition reactions. In addition, the growing complexity of energy generation and storage materials are also driving the need for new site- or area-selective processes to control heterogeneous material structures.
     
    To share advances in these areas, the 3rd Area Selective Deposition Workshop (ASD 2018), will be held on April 29 – May 1, 2018, at North Carolina State University in Raleigh North Carolina USA. The Workshop will bring together leading international scientists and engineers from academia and industry from all regions to share results and insights into: 1) fundamental principles and barriers to area selective deposition; 2) technological needs and challenges of ASD; 3) new chemical approaches and processes to address the expanding needs; and 4) surface characterization techniques and metrology innovation for ASD.

The format consists of morning and evening sessions with a blend of contributed, invited and poster presentations, with significant time available each afternoon for extended discussions. WINDS is scheduled each year for the week immediately following the US Thanksgiving holiday, to be held in Hawaii as a central location best serving the majority of attendees of historical record drawn from Pacific Rim countries. The conference General Chair rotates annually between the US, Japan and Europe.
