The achievement of ultra-high vacuum pressures in a research or industrial system requires some extraordinary measures. Accordingly, the vacuum pumps required to reach 10-9 - 10-12 Torr are also extraordinary. In this webinar we will discuss some of the heroic measures required to achieve ultra-high vacuum and review the range of tools designed specifically to remove or trap the last few remaining gases present at these very low pressures. The course will include details on the operating principles of sputter ion pumps, sublimation pumps, and other techniques that can be employed to reach and maintain UHV pressures.
