'Nano' in Firm's Name Fuels Stock's Gain
A growing fascination with nanotechnology seems to be doing wonders for the stock price of Nanometrics Inc.

But that, apparently, is enough to confuse some investors. It has been a remarkable few days on the stock market for the Milpitas, California-based Nanometrics , whose true identity is perhaps more mundane than its name would suggest: it makes tools that measure the thickness of films deposited on silicon wafers.
