Nanoblog: No shoes allowed

Fashion doesn’t matter when it comes to nanotechnology.

When a group of local editors and reporters toured the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University at Albany Thursday, they got to see a couple of the schools’ four clean rooms up close.

But to ensure dirt wasn’t carried into the clean rooms, everyone had to cover their shoes with blue, disposable booties.

Not possible if you’re wearing heels.

So one editor and one reporter left their shoes behind and padded down the hallway with their bare feet covered in booties.

At least, they didn’t have to put on the full clean room suits.
