Physics World Focus On Vacuum Technology 2014

Challenges, applications and solutions

In this focus issue on vacuum science and technology you can find out how researchers are developing a better definition of the pascal and why a three-year European project – ending this month – is setting new vacuum standards for industrial processing. We report on the importance of “non-evaporable getter” coatings at Brazil’s new synchrotron X-ray source, and hear from Agilent about the latest pumping technology. You can also find out about the recent merger between Atlas Copco and Edwards, while our cover story looks at an experiment at CERN that’s shedding light on how clouds form.
