Abstract:

Lasers have been discovered for nearly 60 years and now become an indispensable tool in science, engineering and commonly used in industries and consumer products. The Nobel Prize in Physics 2018 is awarded to three laureates as a recognition of their contributions in this area: Dr. Arthur ASHKIN of Bell Laboratories, US, received the Prize for his invention of optical tweezers while Prof. Gérard MOUROU of École Polytechnique, France cum the University of Michigan, US, and Prof. Donna STRICKLAND of the University of Waterloo, Canada, are awarded for their work in chirped pulse amplification. These ground breaking inventions in laser physics are fundamentally important for a number of areas. These range from the understanding of the biological processes of a single molecule and the mechanical properties of molecular motor to the production of ultra-short and ultra-intense laser pulses for inertial confinement fusion or attosecond physics. The speaker explains the physics behind their achievements and various breakthroughs and applications stemming from it.
