Virtually every industry is concerned about whether products have film-type or particulate contaminants, whether on work in progress or finished goods. While some are simply aesthetically aggravating ag·gra·vate

1. To make worse or more troublesome.

2. To rouse to exasperation or anger; provoke. See Synonyms at annoy.
, others can cause extremely expensive "killer defects," resulting in reduced yields and reliability at the very least. This collection of articles details methods of detection, characteristics and removal of both film and particulate contaminants and methods of preventing contamination of surfaces. Contributors address the physical nature of small particles and their interaction, transport and deposit of particles and their cleaning, tribological implications of particles, airborne molecular contamination, particle adhesion and removal, electrostatic discharge (hardware, testing) Electrostatic Discharge - (ESD) One kind of test that hardware usually has to pass to prove it is suitable for sale and use. The hardware must still work after is has been subjected to some level of electrostatic discharge.  controls, electron microscopy electron microscopy

Technique that allows examination of samples too small to be seen with a light microscope. Electron beams have much smaller wavelengths than visible light and hence higher resolving power.
