He received the award in recognition of his outstanding contributions in ultrafast molecular imaging and the development of high peak power infrared lasers for high harmonic generation and tissue imaging using optical nonlinear microscopy. CAP will officially present the 2015 Herzberg Medal to Professor Légaré at its Annual Congress in Edmonton in June 2015.
