To mark the occasion, Morgensen showed off a floating Nobel Prize medal won previously by physicist Niels Bohr.

In his banquet speech, Bawendi stated: “Wondering about how the atomic world evolves into the macroscopic one inevitably leads us through a wonderful new world, the nano-world, which we now call the realm of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Quantum dots, for which we are being honored here today were at the birth of this new realm. They shine brightly on its future and the yet un-imagined possibilities it offers. So tonight, let us raise a toast to the human drive for exploration, and to the future of nanoscience.”
