A great place to meet

Vacuum is a central commodity in the technology for manufacturing a host of products which are now part of everyday living, such as microelectronic and optoelectronic devices, TV screens, photovoltaic panels and pharmaceuticals, as well as in scientific research. Producing and maintaining a vacuum and knowing its properties therefore concerns a large number of people who work in these areas. Although these activities span a wide field there is a relatively small body of basic underlying knowledge that is common to all of them.

Seminars are FREE

Running in the morning in parallel with the Vacuum Roadshow exhibition there will be a short programme of Vacuum Seminars. These will follow the successful format established at Heriot-Watt University last year in Coventry and the seminars will feature on advances, techniques, technology comparisons, choosing your equipment for your next project and features to look out for in the fields of vacuum, in-vacuum, thin films; technologies, equipment and instrumentations.

Programme to be published on 14th May.
