Imaging the electronic quantum motion by ultrafast x-ray scattering in real-space and in real-time.

by Gopal Dixit



Electrons are the glue that keeps atoms in matter together, and their motion plays a key role in the function and transformation of materials. During complex chemical and biological reactions, electrons undergo ultrafast rearrangements. In this paper, we propose a new strategy to visualize these rearrangements in time. This approach opens the possibility, for the first time, to take snapshots of electronic motion at different instants and make a movie of electrons.
