iuvsta 80  IUVSTA 80 Cover

About 50 participants from 26 organizations of 15 countries have attended the 80th IUVSTA Workshop and enjoyed the fruitful presentations and technical discussions on vacuum systems for the ultra low emittance light source. Four-days program covers 32 presentations, a visit to the TPS light source, a reception, excursion, and workshop dinner etc. activated the brainstorming on those critical issues of vacuum design for the new or upgrade projects. The photographs and the program book can be downloaded for a good memory and the reference. All the participants can contact each other via the e-mails listed in the program book for further collaborations. The organizers wish the participants all the best and complete their projects with great achievement.

Goal of the workshop

The goal of this workshop is to find the best solutions on the vacuum design and the manufacturing processes for those upgrade projects, ongoing or being planned, of synchrotron light source facilities to achieve the ultra-low emittance of < 0.5 nm·rad. There are many challenging issues on vacuum design and engineering under debate and need to be well evaluated by the vacuum experts from the worldwide institutes or facilities. This workshop provides a forum for intensive discussions after each presentation.

Principal Themes / Topics

    1. Facility reports & project overview for synchrotron light sources with ultra low emittance, on-going or being planned
    2. Design concepts of the vacuum systems, pros, cons and critical issues, for ultra-low emittance synchrotron light sources
    3. Surface engineering and treatments for low outgassing and desorption rates
    4. NEG-coating technologies, development and applications
    5. Critical vacuum components accommodating high beam current operation
    6. Methodology of manufacturing and construction
    7. Pressure distribution, modelling and practical measurement, etc.
