This is primarily a hands on course with some lecture time. Individuals will work on two functioning vacuum systems. Each attendee will manually remove and install components to learn practical knowledge when dealing with vacuum systems. Covered components include forepumps, turbomolecular pumps, ion pumps, thermocouple and cold cathode gauges, valves, flanges, and feedthroughs.
In addition to hands-on instruction, attendees will receive the following:
- Digital copy of lecture materials
- Tour of AIF facility
The course instructor will be Fred Stevie. Fred has 40 years of experience with vacuum instrumentation and is an American Vacuum Society instructor. He is currently responsible for the Surface Analysis Laboratory at NC State.
Tutorial Workshop: Soft Materials
Hosted by NCSU’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF), this workshop will cover topics related to characterization and analysis of soft materials using analytical techniques at AIF. A series of five 15 minute talks featuring examples and instrumentation available at AIF will be presented by staff experts. A facility tour will be offered after the talks. Please register using the form below.
