"Tools made of light" earns laser pioneers the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics

The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to three scientists involved in laser physics. One half of the prize was given to Arthur Ashkin for his role in developing optical tweezers, which uses the radiation pressure of light to move microscopic objects. The other half was awarded jointly to Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland, for designing a method to generate high-intensity, ultra-short laser pulses…
