Big leaps in tiny technology

Imago Scientific Instruments Corp., a Madison company that aims to be a leading toolmaker for the nanotechnology age, has done a successful technology transfer with a twist.

Not only did Imago get two licenses for its technology out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, it got the professor who did the research.

Tom Kelly left his job as a materials science professor at UW-Madison and started Imago, whose sole product is a 3-D atom probe microscope that sells for about $2 million. Kelly had to license the technologies he developed while at the university from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, but the company has been able to build on that platform.
