In the news: "Heinrich Rohrer, Father of Nanotechnology, Dies at 79" by Rose Eveleth Smithsonian.com May 22, 2013 SK5417 - Heinrich Rohrer Heinrich Rohrer (born 1933), Swiss physicist. Rohrer studied physics at the Swiss Federal Institute (ETH) in Zurich under Pauli. He gained his PhD, in superconductivity, in 1960. In 1963 he joined IBM's Zurich Research Laboratory where his research interests included phase transitions, critical phenomena and nanomechanics. While at IBM, Rohrer and his colleague Gerd Binnig designed the scanning tunneling microscope (STM). The STM uses a fine needle with an electric potential running through it to scan the surface of an object. It is able to obtain very high magnifications, even visualizing individual atoms. Rohrer and Binnig were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1986 for this work. Credit: Emilio Segrè Visual Archives / American Institute of Physics / Science Source
