Imaging molecules with Angstrom-Attosecond precision — •Paul Corkum — National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa, Canada
Sub-femtosecond photon or electron pulses were both achieved within the past few years using No-dqre-collisionNo-dq photo-electrons — a technology that is radically different from all ultrafast technology that preceded it. The ability to make measurements in a new time regime will open new areas of science. In the case of attosecond pulses, one implication is the possibility of combining sub-Angstrom spatial resolution with sub-femtosecond temporal precision (Attoseconds & Angstroms). I will show how electrons and photons combine to image electronic orbitals of molecules. Time resolving an attosecond bound state electron wave packet is within reach.
