Stefan Hell

We are pleased to pass on the news that Stefan Hell has won the International Optics Commission (ICO) prize for the year 2000. According to a press release that was passed to us:

"Hell, who is based at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany, is recognized for his work on high-resolution far-field optical microscopy. He is working to overcome the conventional resolution limit and push the resolving power of far-field light microsopy into the nanometer scale in three dimensions."

Please join us in offering congratulations to the man who is known, simply, as Doctor Hell.

(Thanks to Ivan Eliashevich forbringing this to our attention)
