Do you often find yourself complaining about the speed of your computer? Understanding the behavior of an electron in a solid would initiate exponential progress in increasing computing speeds and many body speeds. In a collaborative effort, U-M researchers and researchers from the University of Regensburg have developed a technique to capture electron movement in attoseconds, the fastest speed yet. Seeing electrons move in increments of one quintillionth of a second could help push processing speeds up to a billion times faster.
