Gerd Binnig Chemistry Under the Microscope

Deutsche Welle (July 7, 2013) — He opened up a new world, paving the way for nanotechnology. Gerd Binnig shared the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physics for the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope.

Ever since, information scientists, chemists and materials scientists have been using Binnigs inventions to create materials with made-to-measure properties, in particular for microelectronics. Binnig himself started up a company that develops software to automatically analyze microscope images - for example, to recognize tumor cells. Tomorrow Today presents a portrait of the Nobel laureate.
