EIGERlab hopes to bridge nano gap

Abstract:
EIGERlab, Rockford's manufacturing research and business incubator, has become a regional center for leading-edge micromachining technology. But Tom McDunn, director of advanced manufacturing at the EIGERlab, has his eyes -- and microscope -- trained on a technology much smaller.

McDunn hopes EIGERlab can change that by becoming an education center for nanotechnology, a place where local business leaders can see and learn about the technology many are calling key to manufacturing's future. To do that, he needs specialized equipment that could cost a million dollars.
