Inside a sputter deposition tool. Such a tool is our mainstay for all challenging material development expeditions and scientific exploration, especially in the semiconductor technology. Similar to the voyager, a sputter tool takes us into the world of the unknown- the nano-world.
The Fourth State
A peek into the inside of a sputter deposition tool provides us a beautiful view of the fourth state of matter. A dense plasma is generated near the cathode during the deposition process. A wide variety of thin-film materials including, magnetic, metallic, insulator etc. can be grown by generating the 'fourth state' in a sputter deposition chamber.
I was fortunate to be able to experience and work with the world class facilities at the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center, IBM Zurich.
Falling Walls- Memory technologies
Falling Walls lab in Switzerland was my first foray into the multidisciplinary ideas and startups. Here I presented my pitch on 'Breaking the wall of data latency and loss', which addressed some imminent problems in the futuristic memory technologies. I was a winner at the lab and further went on to be a winner and emerging talent in the final lab in Berlin.

So many bright minds from different corners of the world. All with the same broader goal of making our world a better place.....
Fun with fellow colleagues
Always a treat to be able to enjoy some fun filled moments with fellow colleagues.
Group apéro during Covid19 pandemic were a rare thing but once in a while we managed to beat the pandemic blues.
