Many chemical processes run so fast that they are only roughly understood. To clarify these processes, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now developed a pump-probe spectroscopy methodology with a resolution of quintillionths of a second. The new technology has the potential to help better understand processes like photosynthesis and develop faster computer chips.
