An Imperial-led team of international researchers has used a special X-ray probe to gain new insights into how electrons behave at the quantum level.
Since electrons drive many chemical reactions, the method could lead to a deeper understanding of physics, chemistry and life sciences and could ultimately help design advanced materials and more efficient solar cells.
The team includes researchers from across Europe, the US and Japanled by Imperial's Professor Jon Marangos, Lockyer Chair in Physics. Their paper is published in the open-source journal Physical Review X.
