Using Laser-Generated X-Rays to Watch Atoms Move

University of California San Diego

Atoms move about and bond with each other at a speed that's generally out of our grasp: one trillion times faster than the blink of an eye. But now a group of chemists, physicists and engineers at the University of California, San Diego, has devised a laser-based method for probing into the high-speed world of atoms to directly observe what happens when they move.
