The talk will introduce extreme nonlinear optics and demonstrate ways that isolated attosecond pulses can be generated and characterized both in space and in time.  Then, using N_2 as an example, I will show how measurement can be generalized from optics to characterizing molecular orbitals and their changes during a photochemical dissociation.
