The 2018 Nobel Prize for Physics has been awarded to Arthur Ashkin, Gérard Mourou, and Donna Strickland for their work on laser tools. Optical tweezers have allowed for the manipulation of tiny particles, viruses, and single cells. Ultrashort high-intensity laser pulses have made laser surgery and laser manufacturing possible and may lead to a new means of conducting particle physics investigations.
