ESPOO, Finland, 29th April 2020 – Picosun Group, the leading supplier of AGILE ALD® (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions for global industries, reports several significant new sales to photonics applications.

Like all other globally operating export companies, Picosun has also been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, ALD is still going strong as new fields of industry keep discovering its potential all the time. Photonics is one example of these fields where Picosun’s ALD solutions enable a plethora of novel applications.

“Picosun’s global team is now concentrating all efforts to provide the leading edge ALD solutions and services to our customers. At these challenging times, many industries are struggling. The importance of future-enabling technologies such as ALD gets especially highlighted now. A global digital leap is happening and all businesses are investing in remote working, video conferencing and other digital operations. This requires fast network connections and large, real-time data transfer. Photonics can offer a next generation solution to these challenges,” says Mr. Jussi Rautee, CEO of Picosun Group.

Photonics has rapidly become a key market for Picosun. Several significant industrial sales, both from new and returning customers, have been closed, where end applications relate to production of optoelectronics, displays, signal processing and sensing, lighting, and virtual or augmented reality devices.

“Photonics is a wide umbrella covering several key enabling technologies of today, from optical data transmission and optical integrated circuits to medical applications and even quantum computing. We at Picosun are happy to deliver our ALD solutions to the frontrunning companies in this field to keep their businesses thriving. Novel, advanced means of communication and data sharing will help our global community not only during these times of crisis but in the future as well, as the now happening paradigm shift in the ways of working will have a far-reaching and profound impact on our lives,” continues Rautee.
