    What's New in General Vacuum

    Improved Contacts to MoS2 Field-Effect Transistors by Ultra-High Vacuum Metal Deposition.

    We uncover that Au deposited in ultra-high vacuum (~10^-9 Torr) yields three times lower Rc than under normal conditions, reaching 740 {Omega}.{mu}m and specific contact resistivity 3×10^-7 {Omega}.cm2, stable for over four months.

    Low-temperature growth of single-walled carbon nanotube using Al2O3/Pd/Al2O3 multilayer catalyst by alcohol gas source method at high vacuum.

    In addition, SWCNT growth in a high vacuum is useful for in situ observation techniques, such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

    The Unbelievable Reality of the Impossible Hyperloop.

    The goal is to put tracks and electromagnets inside the tube and vacuum the air out. Ultimately, capsules will scream through the center of such a tube at 700 miles per hour on a cushion of air—a way to get from A to B faster and more efficiently than planes or trains.

    Researchers demonstrate way to shape electron beams in time through interaction with terahertz electromagnetic fields.

    To produce short bursts of electrons in traditional devices, a metal surface is illuminated by a laser, causing electrons to be emitted into a vacuum-unfortunately they do not all travel at the same speed, which means they spread apart as they move towards a target-coulomb forces cause even more stretching, which results in problems in time resolution in microscopy devices.
