Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Donald M. Eigler is an American physicist at the IBM Almaden Research Center, who is noted for his achievements in nanotechnology. In 1989, he was the first to use a scanning tunneling microscope tip to arrange individual atoms on a surface, famously spelling out the letters "IBM" with 35 xenon atoms. He later went on to create the first quantum corrals, which are well-defined quantum wave patterns of small numbers of atoms, and nanoscale logic circuits using individual atoms of carbon monoxide. He shared the 2010 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience for these breakthroughs.show more
