Samuel Beaulieu, INRS graduate student, receives the 2020 DAMOPC Thesis Prize of the Canadian Association of Physicists
Prestigious award to a former INRS student
“I’m happy to be rewarded on the Canadian side because this is where I did all my studies,” says Samuel Beaulieu, who was awarded the prestigious Saint-Gobain Young Researcher prize by the French Physics Society (SFP).
As a laureate, Samuel Beaulieu will be invited to give a talk at the next CAP congress. “Before completing my PhD, I attended several of their congresses and listened to past recipients of the award,” he says. Now it’s my turn!”
Samuel completed his thesis in co-supervision at INRS and CELIA (CNRS/CEA/Université de Bordeaux) under the supervision of François Légaré and Yann Mairesse. The student distinguished himself for his work in fundamental physics on the ultra-fast dynamics of chiral atoms and molecules induced by ultra-short laser pulses. His work had been selected among the top 10 Scientific Discoveries in 2018 in the journal Québec Science. Samuel also received an ACFAS distinction last fall.
During his most recent visit to Quebec, Samuel spoke with us to share his passion for science and the experience he gained at INRS.
Congratulations to this young researcher who has a great career ahead of him!
Every two years, the DAMOPC Doctoral Thesis Award recognizes the best doctoral thesis in a theme related to the science of atomic, molecular, and photonic physics.
