Mourou said, "I am very, very happy to share this distinction with my former student Donna Strickland and also to share it with Art Ashkin, for whom I have a lot of respect".
The Swedish academy praised them for developing a way to increase the power and usefulness of lasers.
Last year, USA astrophysicists Barry Barish, Kip Thorne and Rainer Weiss won the physics prize for the discovery of gravitational waves, predicted by Albert Einstein a century ago as part of his theory of general relativity. Statistics show that women earn an even smaller percentage of bachelor's degrees in physics (20%) than they do bachelor's degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields more broadly (35%).
These devices "are opening unexplored areas of research and a multitude of industrial and medical applications", it said. Marie Curie, who researched radioactive substances and remains the only woman to win two Nobel prizes, won the prize for physics in 1903. New opportunities for observing and controlling the machinery of life have been created.
Arnault is also suspected of violating century-old Nobel rules by leaking names of winners of the prestigious award, allegedly seven times, starting in 1996.
Half will go to Arthur Ashkin, of Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, for "optical tweezers and their application to biological systems". The economics victor in 2012, Lloyd Shapley, was 89.
Donna Strickland and Gérard Mourou were awarded one half of the award, with the other half going to Arthur Ashkin.
The three winners will share the 9 million krona prize.

The Canadian said she was honored to be one of the small number of female winners of the physics Nobel so far. "First of all, you have to think it's insane".
That work resulted in Strickland's first published scientific paper in 1985, and she went on to base her doctoral dissertation on it. "I feel that women should start to get to be recognized more because for some reason not all men want to recognize us or not all people, but I think that's a minority".
"We need to celebrate women physicists because they're out there".
A verdict in his case is expected on Monday, the same day that the 2018 Nobel Prize announcements kick off with the Karolinska Institute announcing who wins the Nobel award in physiology or medicine.
Prosecutors had called for a minimum sentence of three years in what was one of the first big trials to come out of the #MeToo movement.
In 2008, she was named a fellow of the Optical Society of America for her pioneering work in the field of ultrafast laser and optical science.
Dr Arthur Ashkin of Bell Laboratories in the United States won half of the prize for inventing "optical tweezers" while Frenchman Gerard Mourou, who also has USA citizenship, and Canadian Donna Strickland shared the other half for their work on high-intensity lasers.
While Ashkin's optical tweezers may sound stranger than science fiction, they make it possible for scientists to hold, observe and move tiny objects with "laser beam fingers".
