    • Concentrates on physics of vacuum and ultravacuum processes, thermodynamics applied to ideal gases, phase transformation, transport phenomena, collision processes, and gas flow and sorptionunder vacuum conditions, relevant plasma processes, methodology of vacuum production and preservation, control of gas flow, total and partial pressures, and particle energies extended to instrumentation.
    • Integrates physics and vacuum technology in a single text.
    • Gives the reader an opportunity to understand physical models and principles applied to vacuum technology.
    • Includes tables needed for daily practice.
    • Provides an in-depth coverage of mass spectrometers/spectrometry and energy analyses of electrically charged particles.


    Vacuum technology has enormous impact on human life in many aspects and fields, such as metallurgy, material development and production, food and electronic industry, microelectronics, device fabrication, physics, materials science, space science, engineering, chemistry, technology of low temperature, pharmaceutical industry, and biology. All decorative coatings used in jewelries and various daily products—including shiny decorative papers, the surface finish of watches, and light fixtures—are made using vacuum technological processes. Vacuum analytical techniques and vacuum technologies are pillars of the technological processes, material synthesis, deposition, and material analyses—all of which are used in the development of novel materials, increasing the value of industrial products, controlling the technological processes, and ensuring the high product quality. Based on physical models and calculated examples, the book provides a deeper look inside the vacuum physics and technology.
