Lux Capital is a venture capital company that is backing VECO and FEIC, along with several other nanotechs. Lux's two main partners have been on CNBC in recent weeks touting both companies as being true nanotech companies...not just companies putting nano in their name hoping to gain investors. They consider these companies' products to be the "picks and axes" needed by the industry. Forbes Wolfe is one of the partners in Lux Capital. He publishes a nanotech newsletter that is highlighted in Forbes Magazine.
