Thin film technology plays a keyrole in improving the performance of current devices, as well as enabling their miniaturization and fostering a plethora of new application fields. Spatial atomic layer deposition (S-ALD) is a new technique enabling the synthesis of high-quality thin films with industrially-viable throughput and scalability to large-area substrates. In S-ALD films a regrown on a moving substrate which is sequentially exposed to different chemical precursors at atmospheric pressure. The unique S-ALD characteristics of atomic-scale control of film composition and thickness uniformity on large-area substrates open up new application areas, including flexible OLED lighting, displays and solar cells. We will present recent results on the growth of semiconductor and dielectric films by S-ALD, their integration in devices which outperform the state of the art, as well as upscaling to large-area S-ALD tools.
