SOVAR wishes to congratulate Université Laval students Simon Duval and Louis-Rafaël Robichaud who placed first in the 2017 Pierre-Péladeau Bursary Competition. They received their award of $50,000, on May 11th for their Femtum project. SOVAR has been collaborating with them for the past year in the advanced development of this project.
Femtum’s goal is to develop optical fiber lasers operating in the mid-infrared that can be used for applications such as surgery to replace traditional scalpels that cause significant damage.
