Atomically strong THz fields accelerate electrons in bulk semiconductors, new 2D materials, and atomically sharp tunneling junctions. By tracking this lightwave-driven charge transport with subcycle resolution, we explore dynamical Bloch oscillations as well as quasiparticle collisions and record the first single-molecule femtosecond movie.
