If you ever get serious I can get a hold of
final stages vacuums and maybe the highvoltage
and probably some awesome help.

Rick a hard vacuum has fewer stray atoms in the volume
suction can only go so far then you need tricks like cooling
the atoms so they don't bounce around,
or spraying them with oil that captures the stray atoms then falls down 
or good old fashioned hitting them with a bat and knocking them into a 
separate containment area.
