WINNERS OF THE BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AWARD (2002)
The Franklin Institute is shown festooned with banners honoring the 2002 recipients of its prestigious awards in the sciences. Each of the eight winners has signed the image next to his or her name on a banner
Photograph signed: "Norman L. Allinger", "John W. Cahn", "Mary-Dell Chilton", "Sumio Iijima", "Gordon Moore", "Shuji Nakamura", "Alexandra Navrotsky" and "Lucy/Suchman". Color, 11x8. NORMAN "LOU" ALLINGER, now a professor emeritus at the University of Georgia at Athens, a computational chemist, made important strides in understanding of molecular structure and dynamics. Scientist JOHN WARNER CAHN (born 1928 in Cologne, Germany, taught metallurgy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He helped develop the Cahn-Hilliard Equation, which describes the process of phase separation, and The Larche-Cahn approach, an important breakthrough in the treatment of the thermodynamics of stressed materials. He earned the National Medal of Science in Chemistry in1998. MARY-DELL CHILTON (b. 1939), a pioneer in plant biotechnology, created the first transgenic plants. Working in the private sector, Chilton is now Distinguished Science Fellow at Syngentia Biotechnology. Japanese physicist SUMIO IIJIMA (b. 1939), a Ph.D in solid-state physics at Tohoku University, worked from 1982 to 1987 for the Research Development Corporation of Japan. In 1991 he discovered carbon nanotubes while working with the NEC Corporation. GORDON EARLE MOORE (b. 1929, a PhD in chemistry from Cal Tech, joined the Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory division at Beckman Instruments, but left with other researchers to form the Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation. In 1968 he co-founded the Intel Corporation, rising to President and Chairman of the Board. His honors include The National Medal of Technology and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2002). SHUJI NAKAMURA (b. 1954) teaches in the Materials Department of the College of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. While with Japan's Nichia Corporation, he invented the first high brightness Gan LED, a key to LED lighting. ALEXANDRA NAVROTSKY now heads the Organizational Research Unit of NEAT (Nanotechnology in Environment, Agriculture and Technology). Her research focus is the structure and stability of natural and synthetic nanomaterials, and their dependence on temperature and pressure. She also studies airborne geochemical pollution in relation to climate change. LUCY SUCHMAN, a PhD in anthropology from UC/Berkeley, was Principal Scientist at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center where she was the Principal Scientist and later was manager of Work Practice and Technology. As of 2011 she is a Professor of Anthropology of Science and Technology at Lancaster University. In 1987 she published her groundbreaking book Plans and situated actions: The Problem of Human-Machine Communicatiom, with a revised and retitled edition in 2007. Philadelphia's Franklin Institute's bestows its prestigious Benjamin Franklin Awards annually to important contributors to major fields of scientific inquiry. The awards have been called "America's Nobel Prizes." Minor smear in "Gordon Moore". Fine condition.
