An open letter of congratulations to Dr Donna Strickland

Dear Dr Strickland

On behalf of the members of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada from across the country, I am delighted to offer my warmest congratulations to you on winning the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics.

I know that this prize will inspire many Canadians, particularly women, to look at studies and careers in physics and related sciences such as astronomy. I also note that lasers are becoming an important tool for astronomers, for example in the form of adaptive optics.

I also wish you the best in your continuing scientific work.
