We show that ultrafast electron diffuse (inelastic) scattering provides a detailed, momentum-resolved view of electron-phonon and phonon-phonon coupling across the entire Brillouin zone. Ultrafast time-resolution and scattering selection rules can distinguish between phonon branches without energy-resolution.
