Great user contributions on integration of novel materials by PLD on silicon at Solmates' first Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) workshop in the centre of Amsterdam (Thursday Jan 26th and Friday Jan 27th). After the dinner on Thursday evening, the parties enjoyed good discussions on Friday during the presentations of all the participants. Customers of Solmates and interested parties contributed with talks on Pulsed Laser Deposition, integration of novel materials on Silicon, epitaxial templates, demo cases and user experience of the tools. Also production of new MEMS applications with PLD layers were presented. Solmates reveiled its latest news on processes and hardware. All enjoyed the VR demo of Solmates' latest PLD platform.
