On June 6-8 24th All-Russian scientific and technical conference with international participation "Vacuum equipment and technologies – 2017" was held at LETI. It was organized together with Institute of engineering science problems  of Russian Academy of Sciences, Peter the Great St. Petersburg polytechnic university, D. I. Mendeleyev All-Russian Institute for Metrology, S. A. Vekshinsky Russian scientific and technical vacuum society. 

The conference was aimed at consideration of results of the latest researches in the field of physics of vacuum, measurement of vacuum, mass spectrometry and control of tightness and developments directed to creation of the high-quality domestic equipment, devices and technologies in the field of vacuum. Over 80 specialists of the leading higher education institutions, scientific research institutes and enterprises of Russia took part in the conference.

Due to this conference museum complex of LETI got valuable addition to its collection – a device, that belonged to famous soviet scientist in the field of electrovacuum engineering S. A. Vekshinsky.

On June 8 conference continued in D. I. Mendeleyev All-Russian Institute for Metrology. Participants of visiting session of the conference, devoted to the 175-year anniversary, discussed the strategy of vacuum measurement development and vacuum engineering in Russia.

During three days of the conference more than 70 reports on current questions about vacuum generating, creation of vacuum equipment and developing of new technological processes were submitted. Special emphasis was placed on vacuum engineering problem solving in forming of films and top coats by plasma and related methods, investigation of top coats properties and methods of their exploration, new materials of top coats including nanomaterials, new field of their use, development of modern equipment and technological processes.      

Reports of the participants of 24th All-Russian scientific and technical conference were published in conference proceedings and in electronic magazine «Journal of Physics: Conference Series» Institute of Physics Publishing (UK), that is a part of International databases Web of Science и Sсopus.

Following the results of the event resolution was approved, that contains the decision on holding 25th All-Russian scientific and technical conference with international participation "Vacuum equipment and technologies – 2018" and on taking measures on further development of Russian vacuum engineering.    

In particular, preparation of development strategy of this field till 2025 is planned, in which questions of formation of information resources, government relations, organization of educational processes, development and production of domestic vacuum equipment will be reflected. Also the resolution assumes creation of the working group on development of metrology of the vacuum equipment, formation of representative office of Russian scientific and technical vacuum society in the Northwest region and organization of round-table discussions with participation of representatives of business and state corporations.
