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, interfaces, thin films and plasmas and to providing a variety of educational opportunities. Please check News for latest information.

The Society welcomes participation from all its members, and encourages student involvement. It is the Australian body representing IUVSTA (International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications).

The VSA publishes the Newsletter “OZVAC” which includes scientific and technical articles, product information from manufacturers as well as a ‘For Sale/Wanted section’ and other possibilities for those in the field of Vacuum Science to Network and communicate.

Membership is open to all interested parties and discounts for Student membership available.
