While there are volumes of interesting material on vacuum technology, this workshop will overview just a few of the core concepts. The workshop will focus on the foundations of vacuum technology used in advance manufacturing and some areas of material characterization, including the definition of vacuum, defining “how much” vacuum is needed, and how concepts, such as “mean free path”, have a direct consequence on the nanoscale material deposition. Vacuum system design and vacuum pump physics/design will help lead to a demonstration of a vacuum-based deposition tool at Normandale Community College, which is available on the RAIN network.
