Atomic-scale imaging achieves attosecond resolution

Combining features of attoscience with high-resolution electron microscopy has allowed scientists at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit√§t M√ľnchen to develop a new technique for time-resolved imaging in both real and reciprocal space. The researchers investigated the time-scale of Bragg diffraction and the behaviour of electromagnetic waves in space and time by compressing an electron beam into a series of short electron pulses……….
