This paper describes the status of current and future applications of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and Plasma Enhanced ALD (PEALD) in the field of Micro-electronics. Substantial expansion of the ALD market is expected in the coming decade, both in IC manufacturing, but also in adjacent non-IC applications. Several techniques will be described that work around the relatively slow deposition rate of ALD. ©The Electrochemical Society. Source

The DOE Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University announces that ASM Fellow Iver Anderson, Senior Metallurgist, has been inducted into the National Academy of Inventors for demonstrating a "highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating and facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society." The ceremony, which was held April 15 in Washington as part of the NAI's Fifth Annual Conference, welcomed 168 new Fellows into the academy. Each Fellow was presented with a special trophy, a medal, and a rosette pin. "I am honored to have been recognized as an NAI Fellow," says Dr. Anderson. "This award is an outstanding endorsement of contributions made by academic inventors like me to research and, in particular, to research that can have a lasting impact on society." Dr. Anderson is best known for his co-invention of lead-free solder, the top-earning patent for Ames Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory.  It generated approximately $60 million in royalty income throughout the life of the patent, which expired in 2013.  At its peak, more than 50 companies in 13 countries licensed the invention. In addition to lead-free solder, Dr. Anderson and his colleagues developed gas-atomization technology to produce fine, spherical titanium powder for additive manufacturing and metal injection molding of aerospace, medical, and industrial parts. A spinoff company, Iowa Powder Atomization Technologies, was created in 2012 to exclusively license Ames Laboratory's titanium atomization patents.  In 2014, IPAT was acquired by Praxair, a Fortune 250 company and one of the world's largest producers of gases and powder-based surface coatings. "Iver has dedicated his career to conducting outstanding research, and his commitment to excellence has paid off through the awarding of this Fellow recognition," said Ames Laboratory Director Adam Schwartz.  "He has accomplished much, and we fully expect his list of inventions to grow further in the years ahead."

ASM International, Materials Park, Ohio, is pleased to announce that Dr. Ursula R. Kattner, FASM, Physical Scientist, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Md., is the 2016 J. Williard Gibbs Phase Equilibria Award recipient. She is cited for: "For contributions to the thermodynamic assessment of metallic alloys and application to metallurgical processing." The Gibbs Award was established in 2007 to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of phase equilibria.  The award honors J. Willard Gibbs, one of America's greatest theoretical scientists. Originally proposed by the ASM Alloy Phase Diagram Committee, the award supports ASM's strong brand identity and reputation in the field of phase diagrams. The J. Willard Gibbs Phase Equilibria Award is endowed by QuesTek Innovations LLC. In addition to many other contributions, Gibbs laid the thermodynamics foundations of phase equilibria with his brilliant essay, "On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances", published in 1876 and in 1878 in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy.

ASM International, Materials Park, Ohio, announced an important update to the ASM Alloy Phase Diagram Database. Over 1100 new phase diagrams have been added, making the total 40,300 binary and ternary alloy phase diagrams from over 9000 systems with associated crystal and reaction data. The software system has also been updated to provide users a faster, more intuitive interface with new tools and features. Highlights from the release include 895 new ternary diagrams, including 185 ternary systems new to the database. Also added were 205 binary diagrams including 12 new binary systems. Aluminum (230), copper (87), magnesium (86), and titanium (71) phase diagrams were also added. The ASM Alloy Phase Diagram Database is the definitive web-based source for binary and ternary alloy phase diagrams, including inorganic systems. Fully searchable, the APD Center places the full breadth and scope of available data on binary and ternary phase diagrams right on your desktop to assist with troubleshooting, manufacturing control, and the development of new materials.

William F Jandeska Jr, FAPMI, the president of Midwest Metallurgical Ltd and project manager for the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology, has been selected to receive the Kempton H Roll PM Lifetime Achievement Award by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). The award will be presented during PowderMet2016 taking place in Boston, USA, in June. Jandeska is an expert in the field of powder metallurgy (PM) through developing innovative components and relationships between suppliers and vendors. He has promoted the continued growth of PM for more than 44 years through the joint involvement of part fabricators and the end-user community. Beginning his career as an intern at US Steel and Caterpillar Tractor, Jandeska joined General Motors Research Labs for a 20-year tenure, which included an appointment to assist the DoD National Technology Leader for GM with responsibility for high-performance magnetics, P/F connecting rods, main bearing caps, and development of advanced gearing materials. In 1991, he joined GM Global Powertrain Group as manager for PM technology and lead subject matter expert for the PM creativity team, positions he held until his retirement in 2006. Jandeska has received numerous awards, including the MPIF Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy Award and the MPIF Automotive Achievement Award. He also co-chaired both the 1989 Powder Metallurgy Conference & Exhibition and the 2002 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, in addition to chairing the MPIF Technical Board from 1989 to 2003. Jandeska has conducted APMI International chapter presentations on technology, needs, and the direction of the automotive industry, authored numerous technical papers and presentations at MPIF/APMI annual conferences and has held numerous seminars educating hundreds of GM personnel worldwide. Jandeska is an APMI International Fellow, ASM International Fellow, and received the SAE McFarland Award and the ASM Outstanding Young Member Award. The Lifetime Achievement Award, named in honor of Kempton H Roll, founding executive director of MPIF, was established in 2007 in order to recognize individuals with outstanding accomplishments and achievements who have devoted their careers and a lifetime of involvement in the field of PM and related technologies. This will only be the third time the award has been given since its inception, the MPIF reports. This story uses material from the MPIF, with editorial changes made by Materials Today.
