Vacuum science and technology are currently of central importance to much scientific research and industrial activity. Vacuum science is rooted in physics, and finds its application in a wide range of activities ranging from experimental physics and materials science through to semiconductor microelectronics. This text sets out the fundamental principles and practice at a level suitable for an undergraduate physicist. It then presents a selection of applications of vacuum technology in scientific research and industrial production, along with an examination of the whys and wherefores of each. It should help the understanding and analysis of the behaviour of several modern vacuum systems, and should enable an appreciation of their use in the workplace and the design of some simple systems for specific laboratory purposes.
