ibb. Since then, Imago has tapped more than 30 graduates of UW-Madison's science and engineering and MATC's electron microscopy degree programs.
The company also maintains close ties to university faculty, especially those in the College of Engineering departments of materials science and engineering, and electrical and computer engineering.

the tiny bits of material they were studying. The pair approached Kelly, who quickly agreed to give Thompson access to Imago's equipment when it wasn't in use. "Basically, nights and weekends," says Thompson, laughing. David Larson, a former graduate student of Kelly's who now serves as Imago's director of applications, also joined the effort.

"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."
