Attosecond lasers are ultrafast laser pulses that are one-quintillionth of a second, or one-billionth of a nanosecond. They are used to study the world at the smallest scales and have applications in chemistry, biology, and physics.
Some applications of attosecond lasers include:
- Photoelectron and photoion spectroscopy
- Attosecond transient absorption spectroscopy
- Producing soft X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL)
- Pump-probe spectroscopy
Attosecond pulses act as strobes, lighting up electrons so researchers can capture their image as they move. This technique is called pump-probe spectroscopy.
Attosecond lasers are the subject of intense research. DARPA launched a $6.9 million project on applications of attosecond pulse generation in August of this year.
The LENR community should attempt to lobby their DARPA connections to turn attosecond laser research toward LENR research since it is now clear that LENR is a exotic aspect of electron behavior.
I wonder if it is now possible for the attosecond laser to disprove the Bremsstrahlung posit to measure in detail how the electron moves in space and is affected by the quantum foam.. This laser might also be used in LENR research to measure how the electron loses mass by masking the Higgs field as a cause of weak hypercharge activated quantum chiral vibrations as a cluster of electrons grows large.
