What does a female scientist have to do to get her own Wikipedia page? Literally win the Nobel Prize. Dr. Donna Strickland, an associate professor at the University of Waterloo in Canada, won the Nobel Prize in Physics this week for her research on laser amplification. She shared the prize with her doctoral adviser Gerard Mourou. Strickland is only the third female Nobel laureate in physics, and the only living one (the others were Marie Curie and Marie Goeppert-Mayer). The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said Strickland's work had 'revolutionized laser physics.' It also revolutionized her Wikipedia profile -- previously she only had a passing mention in Mourou's entry. .... And now that Strickland is a Nobel laureate with a Wikipedia page, fans on social media said she should apply to become a full professor.
