This chapter presents a philosophy and methodology for designing safety into nanotechnology facilities, using Birck Nanotechnology Center (BNC) at Purdue University as a case study. While the actual designs described are specific to the BNC, they can be easily translated into a wide variety of nanotechnology facilities. The principles employed are universal and therefore directly applicable to the design of these facilities.
When considering nanotechnology safety, the initial thoughts ...
