  The Vacuum Society of Australia (VSA) is a not-for-profit
organization dedicated to the advancement of vacuum science
relating to vacuum technology, materials, surfaces, thin films
          and plasmas and a variety of short courses.

   The VSA is the Australian body representing IUVSTA
(International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications)
and is a Cognate Society of the AIP (Australian Institute of Physics).
Membership is open to all with discounts for student membership.


    Further    VSA Short Courses 2017  

RESEARCHERS  seeking a concise overview of the basics of vacuum technology
TECHNICIANS  maintaining vacuum systems  eg. electron microscopes, surface science, coaters, spectrometers
INDUSTRIAL STAFF freeze drying, vacuum moulding, packaging, suction processes
ACADEMICS  introducing fundamental experiments using vacuum equipment 
WORKSHOP STAFF constructing chambers, flanges, valves, gaskets, feed throughs, viewing ports, etc,
