GERD BINNIG
FDC advocating for retarded children, signed by the Nobel Prize winner (Physics, 1986)
First Day Cover signed: "Gerd Binnig", 6½x3½. FDC honoring Dignity, Hope, Pride Retarded Children Can be Helped, 10-cent stamp affixed, postmarked Arlington, Texas, October 12, 1974, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Binnig and his colleague Rohrer were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1986 for work in scanning tunneling microscopy. They were recognized for developing the powerful microscopy technique, which can form an image of individual atoms on a metal or semiconductor surface by scanning the tip of a needle over the surface at a height of only a few atomic diameters. They shared the award with German scientist Ernst Ruska, designer of the first electron microscope. Born in Frankfurt, Germany on July 20, 1947, Dr. Binnig was educated at J.W. Goethe University in Frankfurt, where he received his bachelor's degree in 1973 and his doctorate degree in 1978. That year, he joined a physics research group at IBM's Zurich Research Laboratory. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso (no show-through). Fine condition.
