Donna Strickland Wins Nobel Physics Prize

Canadian Donna Strickland was awarded the shared Nobel prize for physics on Wednesday the 3rd of October, for her work with short laser pulses which help in the field of medicine and treating cancer. However, she is only the third woman in the 117 years of the prize to be recognised with the award, and many argued that it was long overdue. We were joined by Celine Boehm, Head of school for Physics at the University of Sydney to discuss the recent award, and the role and recognition of women in Physics.
