Ultrafast Lasers: Enabling positive advances from human health to public safety

Michigan State University College of Natural Science (NatSci) scientist Marcos Dantus was among the honorees recognized by the MSU Innovation Center at its 9th annual MSU Innovation Celebration
on April 18. The event was held at the Huntington Club in Spartan Stadium.
Dantus, University Distinguished Professor and MSU Foundation Professor of chemistry and physics, received the 2019 Technology Transfer Award for his work with ultrafast lasers—an innovation that takes a low intensity, long pulse and compresses it to increase its energy. These lasers are ideal for probing and controlling chemical reactions and for use in biomedical imaging and sensing.
