I just realized that as of the 23rd of this month, I had been blogging for 3 years. Three, coincidentally, is also the number of people who read this blog. Counting me.
Something cool: a movie of an electron riding a light wave.
A short blurb that (barely) explains what you see in the movie is here.
Something that I find really interesting is that the durations of light pulses used to make this are shorter than the time it would take an electron to (classically) circle the nucleus in a hydrogen atom. Attoseconds are 10-18seconds. I haven't checked the math, but I think that I read that an attosecond is to a second as a second is to the age of the universe. It makes 3 years of blogging seem kind of inconsequential, really.
