This article is from the news section of the journal Nature

Physicists in Austria say that they have observed events separated by
the shortest time interval ever, and plan to use the technique to study
atomic phenomena.

A group led by Ferenc Krausz of Vienna University of Technology used
pulses of laser light to watch electrons moving around atoms, and were
able to distinguish events that took place 100 attoseconds - or 10^-16
seconds - apart [1].
