Laser beams are used to change material properties precisely. However, the underlying processes generally happen unimaginably fast and at such a small scale that they have so far eluded direct observation. Researchers have now managed to film, for the first time, the laser transformation of a crystal structure with nanometre resolution and in slow motion in an electron microscope.
