Nobel Laureate Henrich Rohrer visited Bayindir Group laboratories during his weeklong visit to UNAM, Bilkent University. Our group members had the rare opportunity to present and discuss their research, and hear Dr. Rohrer’s insight on nanoscience and nanotechnology:

“The central challenge of nanoscale material science is the growth and fabrication of given structures or components at given locations for given functions.”

Dr. Rohrer shared the 1986 Physics Nobel Prize with Ernst Ruska and Gerd Binnig for the design of the scanning tunneling microscope. He is known as the founding father of nanotechnology.
