The pioneering work in “chirped pulse amplification” carried out by our own Professor Donna Strickland and her then thesis advisor Professor Gérard Mourou, resulted in the generation of laser pulses of high intensity that could subsequently be used to cut into materials with extraordinary precision. Inspired by Dr. Strickland’s Nobel prize-winning work, this session of GRADtalks focuses on the broad topic of Technology and Health. What are technologies under development today that will potentially redefine healthcare in the future? How are University of Waterloo graduate students applying technology in new ways?
