His group’s research interests include ultrafast molecular dynamics and quantum control, non-linear optical spectroscopy, molecular strong field physics and applications, and non-linear microscopy of live cells. Dr. Stolow studied Chemistry and Physics at Queen’s University and then obtained his Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry from the University of Toronto in 1988, studying under Nobel Laureate John C. Polanyi. Dr. Stolow was an NSERC post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley from 1989-1992 where he worked with Nobel Laureate Yuan T. Lee. In fall 1992, Dr. Stolow joined the National Research Council where he established laboratories and research programs for the study of femtosecond molecular dynamics and quantum control. Dr. Stolow is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America, has won several prizes, including the Keith Laidler Award of the Chemical Society of Canada, and sits on the editorial boards of various international journals.
