With the Nobel, Donna Strickland became the third female recipient of the prize in physics.

Mourou, born in 1944 in Albertville, France and Strickland, born 1959 in Guelph, Canada, have worked together since 1985, when they published a revolutionary article that would become the basis of Strickland's thesis.
