Photoemission, the ejection of an electron from a material on the absorption of a photon, is one of the fastest processes in nature. An experiment demonstrates how the dynamics of this process can be captured in real time. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-06687-5
