Nobel Prize Winner Gerard Mourou
The Nobel Prize in physics was just awarded to former U-M Electrical Engineering and Computer Science professor Gerard Mourou, who shares the prize with Arthur Ashkin and Donna Strickland for groundbreaking work in laser physics. The Bentley has pictures of Mourou in his lab, in his office, lecturing, and teaching.
