Recent experiments have shown that by combining a femtosecond laser with an electron microscope, dynamics at the nanoscale with femtosecond temporal resolution can be followed. These ultrafast electron microscopy (UEM) techniques have allowed a variety of experimental studies on nanoscale material systems to be conducted, including the ability to image plasmon dynamics in real time. We will discuss how UEM can also be used to study fundamental quantum problems, present some recent experimental results and we will discuss how future experimental improvements will push the temporal resolution from hundreds of femtoseconds down to the single femtosecond regime and below.
