    Events This Week

    Capital Science Evening

    Atom Manipulation: New Perspectives in


    by Dr. Donald Eigler

    Wednesday, November 30, 6:45 p.m.

    Winner of the 2010 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience,

    Dr. Eigler was honored for the development of

    atom manipulation and for the elucidation of

    quantum phenomena with precisely controlled

    atomic and molecular arrangements on


    In 1959 Richard Feynman discussed a "great

    future" in which "we can arrange the atoms the

    way we want." In 1989, Feynman's "great

    future" was ushered in with the discovery of

    ways to manipulate individual atoms using a

    scanning tunneling microscope. Dr. Eigler was

    the first person ever to move and control a

    single atom. He will review the basics of

    scanning tunneling microscopy and describe

    how to extend its capabilities to include the

    construction of atomically precise structures

    through the manipulation of individual atoms.

    Co-hosted by the Carnegie Institution for Science with the Royal

    Norwegian Embassy, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters,

    and the Kavli Foundation.

    On November 30th each year, the world's 300 million Orthodox Christians the worlds second largest

    Church - venerate Saint Andrew, or as he is commonly known in the Orthodox world, Apostolos

    Andreas. Saint Andrew, the first called apostle, is the Patron Saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

    Seventeen centuries ago, Saint Andrew laid the foundations for the establishment of the Ecumenical

    Patriarchate in the ancient Anatolian City of Byzas, which later became the Byzantine capital

    Constantinople, and which is now modern day Istanbul, Turkey. Over the last one hundred years, the

    Ecumenical Patriarchate - the Center of the Orthodox Christian Church - has struggled for survival

    against state-sanctioned abuse and discrimination. Upon the occasion of the annual tribute to Saint

    Andrew, it is appropriate to step back and assess what progress is being made towards restoring the

    full dignity of religious freedom to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

    Sponsored by The Honorable John P. Sarbanes
