The other half of this year's prize was awarded to Dr. Arthur Ashkin, who also won for his work revolutionizing laser physics.
It recognises their discoveries in the field of laser physics.
Donna Strickland, a Canadian physicist, was awarded the 2018 prize jointly with Gérard Mourou, from France, for their work on generating high-intensity, ultra-short optical pulses. Eva Lindroth, member of the Class for Physics at The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, told Xinhua in an interview after the announcement. The technique they developed opened up new areas of research and led to broad industrial and medical applications. These optical tweezers could then be used to control and direct individual cells, viruses, proteins, and even atoms.
Strickland and the third victor, Frenchman Gerard Mourou of the Ecole Polytechnique and University of MI, developed a way to generate high-intensity, ultra-short bursts of laser light.
Strickland said she recognizes that her new status as a Nobel victor may boost her status as a role model for young women wishing to pursue a career in science, adding those with such dreams should go out and pursue them.
A 2011 profile on the University of Waterloo web site says Strickland described herself as a "laser jock" who enjoyed the competitive rush, and was working on creating the shortest laser pulse with the biggest punch. "And hopefully, in time, it'll start to move forward at a faster rate, maybe", she said.
