  author={Mike Eisenberg},
In 1997 the most prestigious high school science fair in the United States—the Westinghouse Science Competition [Berger 94] —was won by Adam Cohen, then a senior at Hunter High School in New York City. Cohen's project, "Near-Field Photolithography", involved the construction of a home-built scanning tunneling microscope (or STM—a high-resolution microscope that uses the extent of quantum tunneling between a metal "reading head" and a conducting surface to map the contours of the surface).
