I recently started a job working on electron microscopes, and have been exposed 
to some ultra high vacuum devices.  I would like to get a basic understanding 
of how ion vacuum pumps work before I start my actual vacuum classes.  Also, 
could you give me a relative idea of how much 2x10-8 Torr is?  I hope my 
questions are clear enough because I don't really know what other info to add.  
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
