Measuring pressure is one of the key ingredients in all vacuum applications. With continual improvements in pressure measurement technology and a plethora of manufacturers who delve into this space, it is sometimes difficult to understand the key differences in the technologies and what variables may affect the readings. This e-Talk will take a dive into the individual technologies and highlight some of the key characteristics for each. Also, a focus in this discussion will be some of the variables that can affect the measurements and how to potentially overcome those issues.

Who Should Attend

e-Talks are an online forum to learn about the latest trends in the core technical areas of the AVS. All AVS e-Talks are geared toward a general technical audience, including academic and industrial researchers, technologists, policy-makers, and the public.
