Synopsis:

Course description : The aim of this course is to get basic knowledge for understanding of modern vacuum technologies applied in engineering. The kinetic theory of gases in the range of low pressures and description of interaction of gases with walls of vacuum systems are presented in the first part of the course. The following part deals with the basic laws of low pressure gaining and with the principles of vacuum pumps. The measurements of total and partial low pressures is terated in the following part and the lůast part is devoted to the application of vacuum technology in engineering.

Requirements:

Kinetic theory of gases, transport phenomane in gases, electrical properties of solid and gases - on the level of basic course in physics.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Importance of vacuum technology in science and engineering. Kinetic picture of a gas,

pressure, mean free path, pressure ranges in vacuum technology, units.

2.Elementary gas transport phenomena, gas flow regimes.

3.Surface processes: gas release of solids, adsorption isotherms.

4.Saturated vapour pressure, Vaporization. Materials applied in vacuum technology.

5.Low pressure production: pumping speed, pumping process time-dependence, residual
