Researchers use laser to ‘photograph’ the forbidden passage of electrons

In quantum mechanics, particles can travel through areas that are forbidden according to classical physics, a phenomenon called tunnelling. Researchers at Aarhus University and ETH Zurich in Switzerland have now mapped precisely where the particle emerges after its passage.
