The nomination process for the 2011 Foresight Institute Feynman Prize is now open. Two prizes in the amount of $5,000 each will be awarded to the researchers whose recent work has most advanced the achievement of Feynman’s goal for nanotechnology: molecular manufacturing, defined as the construction of atomically-precise products through the use of molecular machine systems. Separate prizes will be awarded for theoretical work and for experimental work. The winners of this year’s prizes will be announced at a venue to be announced.
Either submit your own work or nominate a colleague who deserves this prize. Submissions or nominations are due September 30, 2011.
