Journal of the IEST Offers Free Articles on ISO Standards, Nanotechnology, and Environmental Chamber Calibration

Rolling Meadows, IL | Posted on November 15, 2006

The latest issue of the Journal of the IEST, which is published online twice annually by the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, contains Tech Talk articles on the following topics:

ISO to Revise Two Cleanroom Standards. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is reviewing airborne particulate classification factors, sampling requirements, and other clauses as it targets 2008 publication of new editions of ISO Standards 14644-1: Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments - Part 1: Classification of air cleanliness and 14644-2: Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments - Part 2: Specifications for testing and monitoring to prove continued compliance with ISO 14644-1.

IEST Focuses on Facilities in Nanotechnology Initiative. As interest grows in the design, construction, and operation of nanofacilities for R&D and manufacturing, a newly formed IEST Working Group addresses the question: What does it take to do nanotech work?

Environmental Chamber Temperature Calibration: Which Method to Use? This article explores factors that complicate attempts to calibrate these machines and discusses strengths and weaknesses of various calibration approaches.

These Tech Talk articles are accessible free of charge at In addition, the October 2006 issue contains peer-reviewed technical papers related to the fields of contamination control; design, test, and evaluation; and product reliability. IEST members and Journal subscribers have full access to technical papers in the current issue as well as a 20-year archive of papers and articles. Others may obtain full-text abstracts of peer-reviewed technical papers and have the option to purchase individual papers.

More information is available online at or by calling IEST at (847) 255-1561.
