Physics World Focus On Vacuum Technology 2013

Challenges, applications and solutions

Published in addition to our award-winning monthly magazine, Physics World, this focus issue includes a fascinating articles about the role played by vacuum science at the UK firm Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, which is building Europe's answer to the Global Positioning System.

Elsewhere, Allister Watson of Edwards Ltd explains why the flat-panel display industry demands vast systems that can pump at two million litres per minute, while José Miguel Jimenez of CERN's technology department describes the vacuum challenges posed by the next generation of high-energy paricle accelerators.

We also examine vacuum in environmental scanning electron microscopy, explain how the Casmir effect could be used for novel devices, see how the ITER fusion experiment will use 3600-tonne vacuum vessel, and talk to the new head of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications.
