Custom Enclosure for UCLA Nanotechnology Applications

UCLA’s physics department needed a controlled environment tailored to the unique requirements of the Single Electron Spin Microscope. iE worked collaboratively onsite with the research professor to create the design, and subsequently manufactured, and installed the Enclosure around the microscope.Double wall panels enable a re-circulating airflow pathway that, coupled with a thermo-electric heat exchanger and low-velocity filter fan units, provides a Class 3 ISO 14644-1 environment with +/- temperature control. Thick wall polycarbonate construction with vibration dampening bracing achieves 21 dBC of noise attenuation. In addition, a frame less modular panel design approach enabled easy assembly (and planned disassembly) within the limit space available of the laboratory.
