Professor Dantus Receives  2019 Technology Transfer Award at  MSU Innovation Celebration

Prof. Marcos 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.
