Up-goer five ALD definition

This xkcd comic describes a Saturn V using only the ten hundred most commonly used words. And this is an editor that helps you write stuff using only those words. This is my attempt at describing Atomic Layer Deposition:

I grow stuff layer by layer using tiny things that fly through the air and that break down when they touch the stuff I am growing. As they break they form a layer until they don’t break anymore. But then I use a kind of air that changes my stuff and lets me start all over again and add a second layer. By repeating this many times, I can get to grow thicker stuff. I grow my stuff inside a sort of can that keeps me from breathing the things I use because they could kill me or make me sick. The stuff that I grow can be used to make computers or get power from the sun.
