UAlberta team joins LaserNetUS

April 5, 2022
A team of seven scientists from the University of Alberta has joined the LaserNetUS global network, and UAlberta engineering doctoral candidate Chandra Breanne Curry has been appointed the co-ordinator of the network. As part of the network, researchers will be able to use 10 high-power laser facilities in North American to conduct research. In her new role, Curry stated that she will focus on making the facilities globally accessible and encouraging collaboration within the scientific community. “There's so many questions that you can answer with these lasers,” said Curry. “We’re really trying to bring a global community of scientists together to solve a range of big problems.” UAlberta also recently acquired a 15-terawatt laser, which it says is the second-highest intensity laser system in Canada.
