Nanotechnology Facility Design – Determining Your Needs

Posted on January 03, 2006

The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) continues to offer valuable online education classes. “Nanotechnology Facility Design – Determining Your Needs,” will be presented on Wednesday, March 15 at 11:00 AM Central Standard Time. A question-and-answer session will follow this cutting-edge presentation.

A major factor in the successful design and implementation of a nanotechnology facility is the determination of the true needs of the facility. This online course suggests a process to accurately determine the needs of the facility and provide a basis for the facility design. This determination will significantly increase the efficiency of the design process and will ultimately control the overall project cost. Both technical requirements (cleanliness, vibration, EMI) and nontechnical requirements (flexibility, collaboration, research-friendliness) are considered.

Instructor John Weaver is the manager of the Birck Nanotechnology Center facility at Purdue University. John has more than 30 years’ experience in designing, building, and operating cleanroom facilities in the semiconductor industry, and was involved in the Birck Nanotechnology Center from near its conception. A Senior Member of IEST and a Technical Editor of the Journal of the IEST, he is the author of more than 40 technical papers and conference presentations and a book on cleanroom design and construction.

Founded in 1953, IEST is an international technical society of engineers, scientists, and educators that serves its members and the industries they represent (simulating, testing, controlling, and teaching the environments of earth and space) through education and the development of recommended practices and standards.

IEST is an ANSI-accredited standards-developing organization; Secretariat of ISO/TC 209 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments; Administrator of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 209; and a founding member of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies.

This online environment will allow for personnel around the world in the contamination control industry to take advantage of this educational opportunity. More information is available online at www.iest.org or by calling IEST at (847) 255-1561.
