A pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, Swiss physicist Heinrich Rohrer’s work resonates in varied technological areas even today. His participation in designing and building the Scanning Tunneling Microscope, an instrument so sensitive that it distinguishes individual atoms, earned him a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1986. Though he received international acclaim for his career in physics, it was actually by chance that he ventured into the scientific field. As a young boy he was more inclined towards the classical languages and it was only as a college student that he recognized his calling to be a physicist. After completing his education, he spent a majority of his career at IBM due to its flexibility and conducted most of his research there. He also dabbled in superconductivity, multi-critical phenomena, and nanotechnology. He believed that the world should be ready to exploit the new possibilities nanotechnology offers. A friendly man with a witty personality, he was a model physicist who was not only intelligent but also kind. He was a family man who cherished quality time with his wife and children. Even after his retirement, he continued to accept invitations for research projects in various universities across the globe. The many honors and awards he received during his lifetime are a small testament to a man who revolutionized the world of science.
