Atomate on path of building better nanoscale

Atomate Corp. has decided to put the theory of building better mousetraps to the test. Now the question is whether the nanotechnology world will beat a path to its door.

The 10-person startup, based in Santa Barbara, Calif., has foregone the usual dreams of nanoscale manufacturing for a more practical macroscale market: the making of nano-fabrication equipment. Atomate has developed its own line of products to meet the special needs of the nanotech industry, where souped-up gear borrowed from the semiconductor falls short.
