It's tough to make big bucks with tiny technology

Abstract:
If Minnesota is ever to embrace nanotechnology, the state's top research university would seem like a good place to start.

The University of Minnesota boasts lots of impressive-sounding programs: Center for Nanostructure Applications, NanoBiotechnology Initiative, Nanofabrication Center, and Nano & Microsystems Applications Center.

Will any of this stuff translate into an economic windfall for Minnesota? So far, the U has licensed nanotechnology to three companies, two of them local, with mixed results.
