    TODAY'S WORD: clean room

    A clean room (or cleanroom) is an enclosed space in which airborne
    particulates, contaminants, and pollutants are kept within strict
    limits. In industry, clean rooms are used in the manufacture and
    servicing of hardware such as integrated circuits (ICs) and hard
    drives. In biotechnology and medicine, clean rooms are used when it
    is necessary to ensure an environment free of bacteria, viruses, or
    other pathogens. In addition, the temperature and humidity may be

    Clean room specifications for particulate matter (such as dust) are
    defined according to the maximum allowable particle diameter, and
    also according to the maximum allowable number of particles per unit
    volume (usually cubic meters). For non-particulate contaminants, the
    maximum allowable density in terms of microbes per cubic meter, or
    molecules per cubic meter, is specified. Four fundamental rules apply
    to clean rooms. First, contaminants must not be introduced into the
    controlled environment from the outside. Second, the apparatus within
    the controlled environment must not generate or otherwise give rise
    to contaminants (for example as a result of friction, chemical
    reactions, or biological processes). Third, contaminants must not be
    allowed to accumulate in the controlled environment. Fourth, existing
    contaminants must be eliminated to the greatest extent possible, and
    as rapidly as possible.

    In the United States, Federal Standard 209E (FED-STD-209E) was used
    until the end of November 2001 to define the requirements for clean
    rooms. On November 29, 2001, these standards were superseded by the
    publication of ISO specification 14644-1.

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) describes

    the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the
