Binnig, along with his colleague, Heinrich Rohrer, was awarded the Nobel
Prize in Physics in 1986 for his work in scanning tunneling microscopy.
Binnig and Rohrer 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." Binnig was
born in Germany in 1947. Fine condition.
