Steps Towards Filming Atoms Dancing (image) Elhuyar Fundazioa Share Print E-Mail Caption An electromagnetic field accelerates photoelectrons emitted from neon atoms irradiated by an X-ray free-electron laser. In this way, the X-ray pulse temporal profile and arrival time are uniquely retrieved on a pulse to-pulse basis with femtosecond precision.
