The orange glow of a plasma produced under a vacuum dome. The two-day Vacuum Lectures event last week, organized for ITER Organization and Domestic Agency participants, was the third of its kind.
From the fundamentals of vacuum technologies to the discipline needed to install vacuum components, experts demonstrated all the ways vacuum is absolutely key to ITER success. Lectures were supported by practical demonstrations including vacuum leak testing and the production of plasma discharges in vacuum. 

The vacuum lecture series ... or how to learn all about the importance of vacuum in an intensive and hands-on environment.
