Waterloo's Nobel Laureate Donna Strickland received top honours from Canada and France last week in Ottawa for her contributions to science. She was appointed the Companion of the Order of Canada medal and named a Knight of the Legion of Honour.

Quantum superposition is not just a property of subatomic particles but also of the most massive objects in the universe. That is the conclusion of four theoretical physicists in Australia and Canada who calculated the hypothetical response of a particle detector placed some distance from a black hole.

The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) has established a new Fellowship Program. Waterloo's Nobel Laureate Donna Strickland, a professor from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, was named one of the first Fellows of CAP.

Donna Strickland, professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo and Nobel laureate in physics, was inducted into the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), considered the most prestigious honorary scientific society in the United States.
