    Congratulations 2018 Physics Nobel Prize Winners

    team — The LAP team warmly congratulates Arthur Ashkin, Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland on winning the 2018 Physics Nobel Prize! Our colleagues are being honored for their ground-breaking inventions in laser physics. Arthur Ashkin is being awarded the prize for the development of optical tweezers and its application in biological systems and Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland for their method of producing ultra-short, high-intensity optical pulses. The latter is a technique that we use daily and are developing further in our laboratories. Ultra-short pulse laser physics represents a focal point of our research and we are honored that such importance is being attached to this area of expertise.
