Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (2014) 
Harry S. Mosher Professor of Chemistry and
Professor by courtesy of Applied Physics
Department of Chemistry
Stanford University, Stanford, California

Dr. Moerner was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (2014) for his contributions in the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy.  Optical study of single molecules has subsequently become a widely used single-molecule experiment in chemistry, physics and biology. In 2014 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

 

Plenary Speaker
