    WINDS is an international, interactive workshop designed to explore the fundamental properties of nanoscale heterostructures and potential device applications. This workshop covers a spectrum of nanoscale science, emerging materials and device technologies, including 2D materials, topological systems, and advanced heterostructures. WINDS itself began as an outgrowth of the successful Advanced Heterostructures Workshop, which has a long history dating from the 1980s. In 2008 the name changed from AHW to WINDS in order to recognize the importance of nanotechnology in general, and the applications to devices and systems.

  • Monday, December 04, 2017 - Thursday, December 07, 2017

    Event: 82nd IUVSTA Workshop on Plasma-based Atomic Layer Processes
    Location Bankoku Shinryokan, Okinawa, Japan
    Contact: IUVSTA17@camt.eng.osaka-u.ac.jp
    Web: http://officepolaris.co.jp/JSPP2017/IUVSTA17Workshop/index.html


    The 82nd IUVSTA Workshop on Plasma-based Atomic Layer Processes is one of the series of workshops sponsored by International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA). The theme of this Workshop is science and technologies of atomic layer processes (ALPs), i.e., etching, deposition, and other surface processes with atomic-scale size control. ALPs include atomic-layer deposition (ALD), which has been widely used in semiconductor manufacturing processes and is now spreading to other industries that require highly controlled functional material surfaces, and atomic-layer etching (ALE), which is now entering semiconductor manufacturing processes as new processing technologies for nano-scale devices. What distinguishes an ALP from other surface processes is its self-limiting reactions that limit the surface process only to (nearly) a single atomic layer. Processing with self-limiting reactions allows not only atomic-scale topography control but also high selectivity and uniformity over a wide area of the processed material, less dependent on the structure densities. Many existing ALP technologies do not require plasmas but it has been found recently that a plasma-based ALP significantly enlarges the process window by offering novel radical reactions with new energy sources (e.g., low-energy ion and/or photon irradiation) compared with the conventional ALPs based on thermal processes. In the Workshop, therefore, we emphasize the use of plasma for the latest ALP technologies and set the goal to explore fundamental science and to clarify the mechanisms of plasma-based ALPs such as plasma-based ALE, ALD, and surface functionalization of various materials. In addition to plasma-based ALPs, however, we also welcome presentations on novel/conventional ALPs without plasmas as well as fundamental science and technologies, including modeling and diagnostics, of plasmas for highly controlled surface processing.
     
    The 82nd IUVSTA Workshop will be held concurrently with the 10th EU-Japan Joint Symposium on Plasma Processing (JSPP2017) and the registered participants of the Workshop are welcome to attend the sessions of the JSPP2017 free of charge. While the JSPP2017 covers a wide range of plasma science and technologies, the IUVSTA Workshop is designed to offer a specialized venue for in-depth discussion on ALPs among the experts from around the world.
