Scientists capture the speediest ever motion in a molecule

Abstract:
The fastest ever observations of protons moving within a molecule open a new window on fundamental processes in chemistry and biology, researchers report today in the journal Science. The high speed at which protons can travel during chemical reactions means their motion needs to be measured in units of time called 'attoseconds' with one attosecond equating to one billion-billionth of a second. The team's observation of proton motion with an accuracy of 100 attoseconds in hydrogen and methane molecules is the fastest ever recorded.
