SALD is a spin-off from SoLayTec, which developed and sold advanced Spatial ALD machines for the mass production of solar panels, mainly to China. Therefore, SALD has in-depth expertise in Spatial ALD technology, combined with the unique ability to transfer it from lab to fab. To realize the great opportunities in today's growth markets, SALD has developed a unique technology that makes this possible, which is protected by several patents. This technology has been incorporated into a compact machine that can be used for research as well as for small-scale production. Also, a research program has been started, in which SoLayTec works closely with renowned research institutes, including the German Fraunhofer (Europe's largest application-oriented research institution).
