Dr. Donna Strickland jointly won the Nobel Prize for Physics on Tuesday, but she did not have a Wikipedia page until then. As recently as May, a Wikipedia entry for Strickland was rejected as it failed to "show significant coverage" of Strickland's work. Strickland won the 2018 prize for breakthroughs in the field of lasers, becoming the third woman to receive the honor in physics.
