    Fastest camera may film atomic motion

    Fastest camera may film atomic motion

    LONDON, March 13 (UPI) -- British researchers say they are working on a movie camera so fast it will be able to record processes taking place inside atoms and molecules.

    Scientists at the U.K. Science and Technology Facilities Council said they're working to develop an X-ray camera that will create the shortest pulses ever made, TG Daily reported Wednesday.

    The researchers said their goal is to be able to generate X-ray laser pulses shorter than 1 attosecond -- a millionth of a millionth of a millionth of a second. Currently, the best that's ever been achieved is 67 attoseconds.

    "Such pulses will be important for observing and influencing processes within molecules, atoms and nuclei which occur at progressively smaller sizes and faster time scales," researcher David Dunning said.
