Zoran Misetic and Tim Pearce were guest speakers at the April 30th meeting of the NCCAVS Thin Film Users Group in San Jose, CA. Kurt J. Lesker Company® sponsored the lunch that day and Zoran kicked off the afternoon with his talk on KJLC®’s Global business presence. It was interesting that two speakers during this program mentioned that they used KJLC Systems to produce thin films. Withey Gaynor from Sinovia Technologies used our OLED tool in Germany and also Mike Lu, who spoke about Commercializing OLED lighting, mentioned that they used a KJLC tool at UDC. Tim Pearce presented a talk later in the program entitled, “OLED Applications Technology Introduction with the K J Lesker ‘SPECTROS’ Organic Materials High Vacuum Thin Film Deposition Systems.” About 70 members of this Users Group were in attendance.
Volunteers from the Kurt J. Lesker Company® participated in an Earth Day Clean-Up event on Monday, April 22nd. The volunteers removed garbage from the Clairton section of the Montour Trail, the Park N’ Ride lot, and from the grounds of all three KJLC® buildings. We are thrilled to announce the total weight of garbage collected was 1,125 lbs. This project was a part of the company’s Corporate Sustainability Program, which encourages employees to make regular contributions throughout the year to improve our community.

Zhejiang University recently submitted for publication research done on KJLC’s ALD150LX plasma enhanced atomic layer deposition platform. Centering on Zinc Oxide research for resistive memory behavior, the article investigates the bipolar resistance switching properties of Al/PEALD-ZnO/Pt devices. Results have demonstrated that the film deposited by PEALD has enhanced properties than that deposited by other methods for the application of 3D resistance RAM.
