Electron–spin dynamics studied on its natural time-scale
Researchers have used extremely short light pulses of attosecond duration (an attosecond is a billionth of a billionth of a second) and coincidence techniques to follow - in real time - how the electron spin (i.e. the angular momentum of the electron around its own axis) influences the absorption of a photon in a many-electron quantum system, the xenon atom.
