Agenda

ALD-ALE 2021 The AVS 21st International Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD 2021) featuring the 8th International Atomic Layer Etching Workshop (ALE 2021) will be a three-day meeting dedicated to the science and technology of atomic layer controlled deposition of thin films and now topics related to atomic layer etching. Since 2001, the ALD conference has been held alternately in the United States, Europe and Asia, allowing fruitful exchange of ideas, know-how and practices between scientists. This year, the ALD conference will again incorporate the Atomic Layer Etching 2021 Workshop (ALE 2021), so that attendees can interact freely. The conference will take place Sunday, June 27-Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street in Tampa, Florida.
VCCN Minisymposium Product Cleanliness High Tech Campus Eindhoven

Suppliers are increasingly being asked to deliver clean products to OEM companies (Original Equipment Manufacturer). Because there is a need for a definition of how clean the product must be, VCCN set up the Nano, Micro, Product Cleanliness project group in 2017. This working group consists of OEM companies, suppliers and knowledge companies. Soon after the working group started, there was a need to develop a guideline so that everyone speaks the same language with regard to product cleanliness. With the help of OEM companies, who set requirements for the cleanliness of the product, they are energetically working on drawing up VCCN Guideline 12.

In this mini-symposium, experts present the progress of VCCN Guideline 12 and provide substantive contributions. The speakers will be:

Koos Agricola, project manager VCCN Guideline 12
Philip van Beek, Contamination Q&A, VCCN
Max van de Berg, Festo
Rients de Groot, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Paul Krüsemann, Eurofins Material Science Netherlands B.V.
Freek Molkenboer, TNO
Olof Teulings, NTS Mechatronics
Dirk Trienekens, ASML Netherlands B.V.

The chairman of the day is Philip van Beek, co-initiator of the Nano, Micro, Product Cleanliness project group.
AVS 67th International Symposium & Exhibition The AVS International Symposium and Exhibition has been developed to address cutting-edge issues associated with vacuum science and technology in both the research and manufacturing communities. The Symposium is a week long forum for science and technology exchange featuring papers from technical divisions and technology groups, and topical conferences on emerging technologies. The equipment exhibition is one of the largest in the world and provides an excellent opportunity to view the latest products and services offered by over 200 participating companies. More than 3,000 scientists and engineers gather from around the world to attend. Short courses are offered in conjunction with the International Symposium providing specialized training in specific areas of vacuum science and related technologies. A Career Workshop and Job Center are also offered to all attendees. The Workshop covers such topics as résumé preparation, job search skills, networking, interviewing skills, and more. The Job Center provides the opportunity for job seekers to submit their résumés and meet with potential employers.

Vacuum Science and Technology

Vacuum Science and Technology (VST) is a fully new international edition of the Dutch standard work Basisboek Vacuümtechniek, first published in 2000 by the Dutch Vacuum Society NEVAC and with two reprints since a real “bestseller” in the Dutch language region.
The 726-page book contains all 21st century innovations in the vacuum domain. The authors have added important novelties on pumps (incl. MDP/side channelpump and new variants in sputter-ion pumps), pressure measurement (quartz crystal friction gauge, 3B ion gauge) and partial pressure gauges (autoresonant mass spectrometer). The section on leak detection is totally revised. More focus is on counterflow leak detectors, whose maximum achievable sensitivity has increased significantly in the past decade. Two new inside-out leak detection methods are presented, namely the atmosphere method and ‘bombing’. The arsenal of available leak detection instruments has been extended with multigas sniffer systems, hydrogen leak detector and quartz window sensor. The section on cleaning procedures has been adapted to the changed understandings in this area and more focused on complete vacuum systems. Finally, a number of figures has been added or renewed. All in all, the book forms an indispensable resource for researchers, engineers, maintenance staff and sales managers concerned with vacuum-related topics. Throughout the volume, all relevant physical models and present day technology receive ample attention.
Eighteen years of use of the Dutch version in dozens of vacuum courses in the Dutch language region have implicitly proven Vacuum Science and Technology to be not only an excellent reference work but as well an outstanding text book, by its unique graded setup perfectly suited for (combined) higher and secondary level trainings. Exercises are included in two degrees of difficulty. Course participants will experience the book as a synthesis of 'in depth' vacuum physics and modern practice.
VST is also available as a fully updated e-book. Easy to install on phone, tablet, laptop or PC, so you will always have a source of information about vacuum topics at hand. In addition, updates are easily available. Since its first release in 2017 he e-version has been supplemented or changed on some points, e.g. such as the inclusion of all fully worked out solutions to the exercises to further enhance the book's quality as an excellent manual for courses and self-study.

The Dutch Vacuum Society NEVAC awards the book her quality mark 'Under the auspices of NEVAC', thus giving appropriate content to one of its key objectives, namely the dissemination of knowledge in the field of vacuum science and technology.
