What happens in a clean room?

September 16, 2015

SFU vice president of research Joy Johnson (far right, above) suits up to tour the engineering science clean room lab.

Hosted by professor Glenn Chapman (in green), she learned about the silicon products made in this lab used in research, electronics and biomedical products. The air entering the cleanroom from outside is filtered to allow only a very low level of dust, airborne microbes and chemical vapours.

She made the tour as she collects information to develop a new 5-year strategic research plan for the university.
