The Tiniest Doors Begin to Open

Abstract:
Ahmed Zewail and his group at Caltech are the kings of the very, very short time scale. For many years now, he’s been using extremely short laser pulses to accomplish a long list of previously unheard-of results in spectroscopy. (A non-specialist wouldn’t go far wrong by thinking of him as a molecular-scale Harold Edgerton.) His work has not gone unrecognized.

And now there’s a fighting chance that he and his people have recently accomplished something that would be worthy of a second Nobel: UEM, for Ultrafast Electron Microscopy. They’re taking electron microscope snapshots, one trillionth of a second at a time.
