Molecular Layer Deposition: building hybrid materials one layer at at time

Molecular Layer Deposition Alucones

As the applications of nanotechnology grow more sophisticated, the controlled deposition of exceedingly thin layers of materials becomes of ever growing importance.  A well-known technique called atomic layer deposition (ALD) can meet this challenge quite well for the deposition of thin inorganic oxide films.  Using this method, films can be deposited one atomic layer at […]
