Big Molecules’ Little Electrons Probed
A new spectroscopic technique allows scientists to probe the laser-driven attosecond-scale motions of electrons in large molecules (Science, DOI: 10.1126/science1212896). The motions of electrons in strong laser fields underlie the emerging field of attosecond science. But until now, experiments that resolve ultrafast electron motions in strong laser fields have been accomplished only with single atoms or small molecules. Larger molecules, which have more electrons, present a more challenging problem. Now, . . .
