Shih-Cheng Hu, professor and director of the Center for Cleaning Technology Research at the National Taipei University of Technology in Taiwan, will host a seminar, “Energy Conservation and Control of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in Semiconductor Processing Clean Rooms,” on Friday, Jan. 29, at 1 p.m. in 136 Ross Hall. His presentation is hosted by Auburn University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Hu will present state-of-the-art techniques for monitoring, detecting and controlling molecular contaminants in clean rooms. He will also discuss ways to make clean rooms more energy efficient in order to reduce energy costs. Hu has a master’s degree from Auburn in mechanical engineering and earned a doctoral degree from the University of Liverpool. He specializes in microcontamination control, such as airborne molecular contamination and clean room air quality control.
