"In the past, the complications of getting LEAP to work with semiconductors were so great, people didn't even want to hear about it," he says. "Now, when I get a sample set in, we can generate data right away it's a two- to three-day turnaround. And I tell people it's all because the foundation was laid on good scientific principles back when I was a postdoc."

As for Kelly, he naturally can't predict exactly where this latest collaboration will go or what it may yield for Imago's bottom-line objective of selling its microscope. Still, he kno......
