Electron Emission Delay Is Clue To Dynamics
It takes about 20 attoseconds longer for a neon atom to emit an electron from its 2p orbital than from its 2s orbital after absorbing a photon, reports a group led by Martin Schultze, Vladislav S. Yakovlev, and Ferenc Krausz of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, both in Germany (Science 2010, 328, 1658). The researchers observed the photoemission . . .
