Freezing Atoms in Motion: Principles of Femtochemistry and Demonstration by Laser Stroboscopy

Abstract

The concept of the atom, proposed 24 centuries ago and rejected by Aristotle, was born on a purely philosophical basis, surely without anticipating some of the 20th century’s most triumphant scientific discoveries. Atoms can now be seen, observed in motion, and manipulated (1). These discoveries have brought the microscopic world and its language into a new… (More)
