Scientist helps refine cleanroom technology

Editor`s Note: This is the sixth in a series of articles celebrating the accomplishments of the distinguished members of the CleanRooms Hall of Fame.

R. Claude Marsh spent more than a decade helping to refine cleanroom technology for the many industries that have grown to depend upon it.

During his 12-year career as a research scientist at Sandia Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM), he specialized in surface cleaning and environmental contamination control for atomic weapons and spacecraft systems. He also worked to further develop the concept of laminar airflow, which was invented by one of his peers and fellow CleanRooms Hall of Fame member, Willis Whitfield.

While working as a director of research and development, Marsh developed industrial and biomedical cleanroom products and provided worldwide technical support for laminar airflow applications.

He spent seven years as a consultant in environmental contamination control, providing new product development and design for laminar airflow systems.

In addition, Marsh was a member of the IES working group that developed Federal Standard 209. He is the author of more than 40 publications and presentations dealing with contamination control.

Marsh was inducted into the first CleanRooms Hall of Fame in 1990.
