Clean Event Design, production, assembly and packaging An experts view on cleanliness
The cleaning of components is one of the critical steps in modern production processes. Whether it comes to ensuring the required cleanliness for subsequent steps in the process, or guaranteeing the quality and functionality of the component to be cleaned, the cleaning of components is a crucial step in many industries, such as metal working and processing, automotive, medical technology, and aerospace.
AVS Webinar: Atomic Layer Deposition from an Applications Location: Virtual/Online


Over the last two decades Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) has become a key enabling method with a multitude of applications benefiting from the (ultra)thin films that can be prepared with precise thickness control and with unparalleled uniformity and conformality on substrates with a demanding surface topology.

In this webinar the method of ALD will be presented with a focus on various applications of ALD: both in the lab and in the fab; from high volume manufacturing to niche markets; from emerging technologies to proof-of-concepts. Special attention will be given to the key features that ALD provides for these specific applications as well as the associated ALD configurations and types of equipment.
91st IUVSTA Workshop “Surface Chemistry of Catalytic Systems” Rehevot, Israel
Chemical reactions occurring at the solid/gas and solid/liquid interfaces control the functionality of a variety of energy materials used in fuel cells, batteries, and catalysts. Development of various tools that enables collecting spectroscopy and microscopy data at the molecular level and at the lower nanometer scale is essential for providing new insights into chemical reactions on energy-related interfaces. The workshop will focus on the recent technical developments of spectroscopy and microscopy techniques and their utilization for basic understanding of energy materials. More specifically, this workshop will explore the development of ambient pressure x-ray and vibrational spectroscopies and scanning probe microscopies, and their utilization on monitoring the surface reactions on heterogeneous catalysts.

Vacuum Science and Technology

Vacuum Science and Technology (VST) is a fully new international edition of the Dutch standard work Basisboek Vacuümtechniek, first published in 2000 by the Dutch Vacuum Society NEVAC and with two reprints since a real “bestseller” in the Dutch language region.
The 726-page book contains all 21st century innovations in the vacuum domain. The authors have added important novelties on pumps (incl. MDP/side channelpump and new variants in sputter-ion pumps), pressure measurement (quartz crystal friction gauge, 3B ion gauge) and partial pressure gauges (autoresonant mass spectrometer). The section on leak detection is totally revised. More focus is on counterflow leak detectors, whose maximum achievable sensitivity has increased significantly in the past decade. Two new inside-out leak detection methods are presented, namely the atmosphere method and ‘bombing’. The arsenal of available leak detection instruments has been extended with multigas sniffer systems, hydrogen leak detector and quartz window sensor. The section on cleaning procedures has been adapted to the changed understandings in this area and more focused on complete vacuum systems. Finally, a number of figures has been added or renewed. All in all, the book forms an indispensable resource for researchers, engineers, maintenance staff and sales managers concerned with vacuum-related topics. Throughout the volume, all relevant physical models and present day technology receive ample attention.
Eighteen years of use of the Dutch version in dozens of vacuum courses in the Dutch language region have implicitly proven Vacuum Science and Technology to be not only an excellent reference work but as well an outstanding text book, by its unique graded setup perfectly suited for (combined) higher and secondary level trainings. Exercises are included in two degrees of difficulty. Course participants will experience the book as a synthesis of 'in depth' vacuum physics and modern practice.
VST is also available as a fully updated e-book. Easy to install on phone, tablet, laptop or PC, so you will always and everywhere have a source of information about vacuum topics at hand. Additional advantage of an e-book above offset publication: updates are easily available. Since its first release in 2017 the e-version has been supplemented or changed on some welcome points, such as for instance the inclusion of all fully worked solutions to the chapter exercises. This to further enhance the book's quality as an excellent manual for courses and self-study.

The Dutch Vacuum Society NEVAC awards the book her quality mark 'Under the auspices of NEVAC', thus giving appropriate content to one of its key objectives, namely the dissemination of knowledge in the field of vacuum science and technology.
