In order to fully characterize nano-scale processes, their dynamics must be studied at their characteristic length and time scales. For many such processes, high harmonic generation can create light at these scales. In this talk I will discuss how to harness coherent diffractive imaging techniques and pump-probe techniques to directly measure nano-scale dynamics. This capability will be demonstrated by imaging acoustic waves propagating through nano-structures.
