Have you ever had an otherwise perfect photo ruined by someone who moved too quickly and caused a blur?

Now a team of researchers from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron in Germany have combined machine learning and quantum mechanical calculations to get the most precise record yet of structural changes in a photoactive yellow protein (PYP) that has been excited by light. Their study, published in November in Nature, showed that they were able to make movies of processes that occur in quadrillionths of a second.
