High energy particle physics applications will typically involve particle enclosure in sophisticated evacuated beam guidance systems. Excellent vacuum quality is paramount, with the vacuum monitored most commonly by quadrupole residual gas analysers(RGA’s). Issues arise in situations involving very hard radiation environments due to the potential degradation of unprotected active electronic components, with protection typically requiring complex and bulky radiation shielding.
