      Subject: Nano News: Chris Love Wins 2000 Foresight Student Award

      Our long-time colleague Chris Love has been honored with this year's
      Foresight Distinguished Student Prize. This prestigious prize, which
      includes both a trophy and a cash award, was presented by the Foresight
      Institute during the Feynman Awards Banquet at the Eighth Foresight
      Conference on Molecular Nanotechnology. The conference was held this past
      weekend in Washington, DC.

      Chris received the Foresight Award for his seven years of consistent
      contributions to the field of nanotechnology working at three major U.S.
      research laboratories. This includes his indispensable contributions to
      and his co-authorship of three influential MITRE review articles on
      nanoelectronics. Also at MITRE, in 1997 Chris invented the important
      strategy of using intramolecular doping of polyphenylene Tour wires in
      order to build integrated molecular electronic circuits. This invention
      since has been adopted in a series of important research articles published
      by molecular electronics investigators at several major research
      institutions, including MITRE.

      Subsequently, during 1998, Chris collaborated with the distinguished
      surface chemist Professor Paul Weiss at Penn State University. There,
      Chris performed basic research in the nanomanipulation of structures on
      surfaces, he co-authored three journal articles about this research, and he
      also assisted in writing a major molecular electronics research proposal.

      Chris, who has worked in the MITRE Nanosystems Group since 1994, when
      he was 16 years old, graduated from the University of Virginia in 1999 with
      High Honors in Chemistry. Now, he is a second-year graduate student
      working toward his Ph.D. in chemistry at Harvard University. There, he is
      collaborating with Professor George Whitesides, one of the world's leaders
      in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

      Chris, who has an unusually broad and deep knowledge of the
      nanotechnology research literature, has been assigned by Professor
      Whitesides the important task of collaborating with him in formulating the
      nanotechnology research strategy for the Whitesides Research Group.
      Further, at Harvard Chris already has made advances in his experimental
      research on novel techniques for nanofabrication. He has recently
      completed and submitted a journal article on that topic.

      All of the contributions above were cited by the Foresight Institute in
      presenting Chris Love with the 2000 Distinguished Student Award. Please do
      join me in congratulating Chris on this honor.
