Filming roaming molecular fragments in real time

Scientists have succeeded in shooting the first molecular film of 'roamers' (hydrogen fragments, in this case, that orbit around HCO fragments) during a chemical reaction, by studying the photo-dissociation of formaldehyde, H2CO.

Observing the ultrafast motion of atoms and electrons

New research shows that it is possible to distinguish between the electronic dynamics of atomic motion on the scale of one tenth of one millionth millionth of a second (or 100 femtoseconds). This opens the way for the development of a science that can control materials through light.

Defects slow the electron's dance

Researchers used two advanced microscopy techniques to learn how crystal defects in a type of solar power cell affect their performance. The study involved crystalline solar cells called lead halide perovskite cells.
