Vacuum Science and Technology
a completely new international edition of the Dutch standard work Basisboek Vacuümtechniek
In this English edition dr. ir. Bert Suurmeijer, ing. Theo Mulder and dr. ir. Jan Verhoeven have included all relevant knowledge and updates for anybody who works in research, instrumentation, development or production of vacuum technology. The authors have added important updates on vacuum pumps, pressure measurement, ion sources, leak detection and cleaning and working discipline.

Since Basisboek Vacuümtechniek was released in the year 2000 in the Netherlands by the Dutch Vacuum Society NEVAC, both industry and science have made significant progress in the field of vacuum technology. Vacuum has entered into more industries and areas of research and it forms the basis for higher revenues, precision and efficiency. The production of solar cells and organic displays has left its infancy, science has focused en masse on nano-related subjects and meanwhile the chip industry is on the brink of performing the most crucial step in the IC production, lithography, in vacuum.
It took a few years, but now there is a very detailed reference book on vacuum physics and technology that is completely up to date. The authors have totally revised the chapter on leak detection. This was done because the maximum achievable sensitivity of counterflow leak detection has increased significantly in the past decade. Aside from that two inside-out leak detection methods are added, namely the atmosphere method and the bombing method.
