Vacuum Science World

PORTAL OF EXPERTISE FOR VACUUM TECHNOLOGY

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT VACUUM SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Vacuum Science World is a centralised educational and information portal for all things relating to vacuum science, and a global community for those interested in or working in the vacuum technology industry.

This website provides a platform for researchers, engineers, scientists and students to collaborate, network and share knowledge on vacuum science and technology.

Vacuum Science World has a repository of in-depth, high-quality content on vacuum technology – including thought leadership, articles and interviews, ranging from vacuum science and related applications, vacuum physics, vacuum generation, measurement and analysis to leak detection, practical information around vacuum systems and its installation, operation, control and maintenance.

Contributions, particularly from experts in the field, are welcome. New content will regularly be added to the Vacuum Science World Knowledge Hub which can be accessed here.

HEROES OF VACUUM SCIENCE

Evangelista Torricelli

Torricelli was a student Galileo and developed the first mercury filled glass tube known as the ‘Barometer’. He is also known for writing ‘Torricelli’s Law’ which centred on speed of a fluid flowing out of an opening.
