Feynman Prizes Awarded by Foresight Nanotech Institute
Nanotechnology Think Tank Honors Top Researchers, Author and Student
Palo Alto, CA October 9, 2007 - Foresight Nanotech Institute, the leading think tank and public interest organization focused on
nanotechnology, awarded prizes to leaders in research, communication and study in the field of nanotechnology at the Productive
Nanosystems Conference, being held today in Arlington, Virginia. These prizes are conferred on individuals whose work in research,
communication and study are moving our society towards the ultimate goal of atomically-precise manufacturing.
The 2007 Foresight Institute Feynman Prizes, named in honor of pioneer physicist Richard Feynman, are given in two categories, one for
experimental work and the other for theory in advances in nanotechnology. This year the Theory Prize was won by David Leigh of University
of Edinburgh, UK, and the Experimental Prize went to Fraser Stoddart of UCLA.
