I thought that the least time in which anything could happen was a fermi. I was wrong. A fermi is a unit of distance 10 to the -15 meters, about the diameter of a nucleus. The unit of time is a jiffy, the time it takes light to travel one fermi.

The shortest meaningful length is the Planck length.
