Finnish physicist Tuomo Suntola won the “Nobel of Technology” grant for his innovative technology to lessen the measure of shrewd gadgets, for example, PCs and cell phones.
The 74-year-old Finnish physicist was granted the Millennium Technology Award likewise called Nobel of Technology grant for his accomplishment to the modernization and scaling down of keen gadgets and PCs. The Ph.D. physicist won the prize worth one million euros ($1.18 million) for building up the innovation of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD).
He utilized it to produce ultra-thin layers of materials (thickness of an iota) for different electrical and tech gadgets, for example, microprocessors, smartphones, computers, digital memory gadgets. ALD upgrades the execution and life of these gadgets by changing over them into little sizes. ALD stores thin layers of materials which conveys no power yet have electrostatic powers. Today, this innovation is being utilized for an assortment of gadgets all around the globe.
Finnish Academy of Technology said in a statement “The compensated development, the ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition), is a nanotechnology that is utilized all through the world.”
Suntola built up this innovation in 1974 when he needed to supplant substantial and overwhelming PC screens with level, decreased and electroluminescent screens. Suntola told AFP (a worldwide news organization) that “In the starting, we didn’t have a lab, however, I had stuck the intermittent table of components to the divider and took a gander at it to make a blend of its members.” The researcher stated, since his childhood, he has been acutely inspired by material science and used to fabricate radios with his companions.
The innovation developed in 1990 when there was a need to construct thin layers of materials for the cutting edge segment. The researcher said, “The ALD makes it conceivable to build the thickness of parts essentially, at the end of the day, today we would not have the capacities that we know today in our cell phones or PCs without the ALD innovation.”
