W. E. (William Esco) Moerner is widely recognized for the first optical detection of a single molecule in condensed matter at IBM Research in 1989. During the last 25 years in academia, he has conducted research in physical chemistry, biophysics, and the optical properties of single molecules, and is actively involved in the development of 2D and 3D super-resolution imaging and single-particle tracking for cell biology and nanoscale science along with single-molecule optical studies of photosynthesis in solution. Professor Moerner’s scientific contributions were recognized with the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry “for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy.”
