Daniel Cunningham works in one of the most sterile environments you'll find in western New York.

He's a process and maintenance technician at a SUNY-owned research facility in Canandaigua. His job is to don a bunny suit, enter a clean room and fuse layers of oxide onto wafers made of silicon. Cunningham and his co-workers make microelectromechanical systems, a fancy name for chips that eventually end up in digital cameras, cell phones, cars, and movie projectors.
