Can ultrashort electron flashes help harvest nuclear energy?

0

(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) EPFL physicists have now demonstrated experimentally the ability to coherently manipulate the wave function of a free electron down to the attosecond timescale (10-18 of a second). The team also developed a theory for creating zeptosecond (10-21 of a second) electron pulses, which could also be used to increase the energy yield of nuclear reactions.
