noun
a vacuum pump that removes gas by ionizing the atoms or molecules and adsorbing them on a metal surface
Hypernyms: ↑air pump, ↑vacuum pump

ion pump,
a device for producing a vacuum by ionizing gas molecules and then collecting them with the aid of an electric field: »

In spite of the many advantages of the diffusion pump, it is often replaced in small laboratory systems by the ion pump (Scientific American).
