RRALD is a strategic research project between VTT, LUT/ASTRaL, TUT/PAK and
industrial partners. The goal is to develop a roll-to-roll atomic layer
deposition (ALD) system and characterise the materials produced by it in a
range of important applications. It builds on the successful outcome of the
previous project (CALD) by some of the participants (LUT/ASTRaL and TUT/PAK)
where the first steps of a continuous ALD process were developed.
The aim in RRALD is to design, build, characterise and understand a true
roll-to-roll ALD process. The outcome will be an ALD process which will allow
the coating of continuous polymer (or other) webs for surface
functionalisation, diffusion barriers, buffer layers, or other purposes. It
will open up a whole new range of industrial processes to the ALD process and
will enable Finland to be the world leader in roll-to roll ALD technology.
