Introduction to Nano-Biosensing



Although Richard Philip Feynman envisaged nanotechnology in his famous lecture held at California Institute of Technology in 1959 [1], modern nanotechnology started when Gerd Binning and Heinrich Rorer invented the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) at the IBM laboratory in Zurich, in the early 1980s [2]. The importance of this invention was immediately recognized and they became Nobel laureates a few years later, in 1986.
