Microscope maker turns hobby into millions

Adam Kollin didnít start out to build microscopes that could look at atoms. He just wanted to help his deaf grandmother know when someone was knocking at her front door. It (RHK) sells its microscopes, priced from $250,000 to $1.2 million, to universities, national research labs and companies in the burgeoning field of nanotechnology. The microscopes help researchers better understand chemistry at the molecular level as they build things with tinier and tinier features.
