This one-day course is designed to overview materials and processes typically used in vacuum technology, including equipment and processes used for basic vacuum Leak Detection. Although the content of the course is most optimally presented if the course is preceded by appropriate content from other courses, such as Fundamentals of Vacuum Technology, Vacuum Gauges, and Vacuum Pumps, it can often be customized to provide necessary framework/background for the concepts and discussion presented. The course is typically divided into Vacuum Hardware in the morning, and Vacuum Leak Detection in the afternoon, separated by a time for lunch.
The organizers of the 7th Asia-Pacific Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry (APWC) cordially invite you to participate in this event of the spectrochemical world, to be held in Matsue, Japan. Stimulated by the ceaseless growth in popularity of plasma sources for atomization and excitation in atomic spectroscopy and ionization in mass spectrometry, and urgent need to discuss recent developments of plasma in spectrochemical analysis, this conference is organized. Besides it will bring together international scientists experienced in theory, instrumentation and applications to discuss and promote progresses in the field. The conference will consist of plenary and parallel sessions, poster presentation, and instruments exhibition. World-famous scientists will be invited to give plenary and keynote lectures at the conference. Matsue-city is located about 600 km west of Tokyo. Traveling time by air, from Tokyo International Airport (Haneda), is about 1 1/2 hours. Matsue-city is old historical city, and we can enjoy traditional countryside of Japan.
