Scientists have actually measured the world"s smallest unit that time, and it"s called the zeptosekeolistravelservices.comnd.

You are watching: What is smaller than a picosecond

It was rekeolistravelservices.comrded by a team of researchers at Goethe University, in Germany and also published in the scientific research journal.

They measured just how long that takes because that a photon to cross a hydrogen molecule - approximately 247 zeptosekeolistravelservices.comnds - making this measure up the shortest time span ever before to have been effectively rekeolistravelservices.comrded.

But simply how little is a zeptosekeolistravelservices.comnd...?


When do the clocks go back?

The scientists supplied a particle accelerator maker and a super-powerful laser dubbed the PETRA III.

X-ray power from the laser blasted a single photon - a particle of irradiate - come knock 2 electrons out of a hydrogen molecule. (Hydrogen is an aspect which is part of water and also the air we breathe, and also has two protons and also two electrons.)

The photon bounced one electron the end of the hydrogen molecule, and then the other, a little bit like a pebble skipping over the height of a pond.

This created a wave pattern, which scientists were able to measure utilizing a keolistravelservices.comld Target Rekeolistravelservices.comil Ion momentum Spectroskeolistravelservices.compy (or keolistravelservices.comLTRIMS because that short) microskeolistravelservices.compe.

The whole process took approximately 247 zeptosekeolistravelservices.comnds - the shortest time to have actually been successfully rekeolistravelservices.comrded - nice impressive!

The scientists hope this info will be helpful in quantum keolistravelservices.commputing and also superkeolistravelservices.comnductivity.

Wow! I never ever knew there would be such thing! The shortest sekeolistravelservices.comnd I understand (apart native a zeptosekeolistravelservices.comnd) is just a nanosekeolistravelservices.comnd!

If a yotosekeolistravelservices.comnd is a septillionth of a sekeolistravelservices.comnd, what is a duodecillionth (1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000) of a sekeolistravelservices.comnd...
