Diffraction techniques have allowed determination of three-dimensional equi­librium structures with atomic resolution in systems ranging from diatoms (NaC1) to DNA, proteins and complex assemblies such as viruses. For dy­namics, the time resolution has similarly reached the fundamental atomic scale of motion. With the advent of femtosecond time resolution nearly two decades ago, it has become possible to study the dynamics of non-equilibrium molecular systems, also from the very small (NaI) to the very large (DNA, proteins and their complexes) [1]. A tantalizing goal is the potential to map out, in real time, the coordinates of all individual atoms in complex chemical and biological reactions.
