Quantum mechanics dictates how particles and forces interact, and thus how atoms and molecules work, for example, what happens when a molecule goes from a higher-energy state to a lower-energy one. But beyond the simplest molecules, the details become very complex. Now, a Pixel-Imaging Mass Spectrometry camera and a femtosecond vacuum ultraviolet light source are showing how does quantum mechanics work in larger, more complex systems.
