Tracking Electrons

Attosecond science opens the door to real-time observation and control of electron dynamics
Department: Science & Technology, ACS News

TEN YEARS AGO, Ahmed H. Zewail won the Nobel Prize for using femtosecond spectroscopy to study atomic motions during chemical reactions. Emerging now from Zewail's pioneering work is the ability to use femtosecond laser pulses to monitor attosecond-scale electron dynamics, which was the focus of a Divison of Physical Chemistry symposium on attosecond science at the American Chemical Society national meeting in . . .
