As everyone knows from their school science lessons, nature abhors a vacuum. However, vacuums are extremely useful in a wide range of different applications. That is why scientists have long engaged with the problem of defying nature and ensuring that hermetically sealed devices maintain their vacuums intact. One of the solutions commonly used is the addition of a getter to bind active gases by chemical reaction under vacuum. One of the leading producers of getters in a variety of types is SAES Getters SpA in Italy.
