- Roll to Roll Vacuum Spatial ALD (V-SALD) systemLotus’ TransFlex Roll to Roll ALD technology is ideally suited to the deposition of relatively thin ALD films, where high performance, high volume, and low coating cost are all critical.The unique patented technology for Roll to Roll PEALD achieves high speed, low cost deposition in a remarkably simple way. We weave the flexible substrate back and forth between physically separated precursor regions. This geometry allows extended path lengths for the substrate in each of the reaction zones, allowing web speeds orders of magnitude faster than can be achieved in Spatial ALD reactors utilizing coating “heads” (see schematic above).Operating under medium vacuum pressure similar to that used for conventional ALD, precursor separation is easily maintained by differential pressure and pumping, allowing large open passageways, millimeters wide, for the substrate to pass through. This is in stark contrast to atmospheric pressure Spatial ALD, where the passageway gaps must be restricted to 10’s of microns to avoid precursor mixing. And the use of a simple DC direct plasma instead of water as the oxygen precursor allows us to maintain very high web speeds, even at very low temperatures.
- Vacuum spatial ALD (V-SALD) systemLotusAT’s Vortex ALDTM technology revolutionizes batch ALD processing. Instead of pulsing and purging precursors to and from a static substrate in a single chamber, the substrate is transported by rotation to the various precursor, purge, and plasma zones of the reactor, eliminating the time required for precursor introduction, saturation, and purge with each ALD cycle. Further, Lotus’ patented Radical Enabled ALD technology, incorporating “Precursor Separation by Radical De-activation”, greatly simplifies zone separation, and enables the use of a simple DC plasma.Operating under medium vacuum conditions of about 1 Torr pressure, the precursor separation technology enables wide zone isolation gaps, up to 30 millimeters in some cases, which allows uniform deposition on relatively large and irregularly shaped substrates, such as stuffed circuit boards, highly curved optical lenses, and thick planar substrates.See this paper for an example of scientific use of this system.

Atomic Layer DepositionAtomic Layer Deposition (ALD) provides super high-density films that are extremely uniform with exceptional step coverage. The Minilock ALD system has the capability to grow Atomic Layer Deposition films in Thermal and Plasma Enhanced modes (PEALD). It has the industry’s smallest footprint and lowest cost of ownership. The system is available for wafers up to 300mm in diameter. ALD is a thin-film deposition technique based on the sequential use of a gas-phase chemical process and/or plasma processes (PEALD). The majority of ALD reactions use two chemicals called precursors and reactants. The precursor adsorbs onto the surface of the material and the reactant is added thereafter, one at a time in a sequential, self-limiting, manner. By keeping our core components the same, it is very easy to scale to a production cluster platform. Standard processes have been developed for various materials. This is backed by over 25 years’ experience in rapid process development.
