Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology Finalists Announced
Top Nanotechnology Researchers to be Honored at Productive Nanosystems Conference, October 9-10
Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology: 2007 Finalists announced
PALO ALTO, CA | Posted on September 5th, 2007
Foresight Nanotech Institute, a leading think tank and public interest organization focused on nanotechnology, announced the finalists for the 2007 Foresight Institute Feynman Prizes. These prestigious prizes, named in honor of pioneer physicist Richard Feynman, are given in two categories, one for experiment and the other for theory in nanotechnology. Established in 1993, these prizes honor researchers whose recent work has most advanced the achievement of Feynman's goal for nanotechnology: the construction of atomically-precise products through the use of productive nanosystems.
"The Foresight Institute Feynman Prizes recognize the world's highest achievements toward nanotechnology's goal of building with atomic precision," said Dr. Pearl Chin, President of Foresight Nanotech Institute. "The Productive Nanosystems Conference will honor this work and present a roadmap leading forward to this ultimate manufacturing capability, with commercial applications driving R&D at each step along the pathway."
The winners of this year's prizes will be announced at the Feynman Prize Luncheon on October 9, 2007 at the Productive Nanosystems Conference. Presentations of the winners' research are scheduled for the following day, October 10, 2007, at 11:30 a.m.
The 2007 finalists for the Experimental prize are:
Andrew Ellington from University of Texas at Austin
Matthew Francis of University of California, Berkeley
Kazushi Kinbara and Takuzo Aida from University of Tokyo, Japan
David Leigh from University of Edinburgh, UK
J. Fraser Stoddart from University of California, Los Angeles
James M. Tour from Rice University
Itamar Willner from Hebrew University, Israel
The 2007 Finalists for the Theory prize are:
Robert A. Freitas, Jr. from the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing
David Leigh from University of Edinburgh, UK
George Schatz from Northwestern University
Tamar Seideman from Northwestern University
