This was published in Nature, so it seems credible enough: http://www.nature.com/nphys/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nphys2071.html So could this thing be used to help achieve an Accelerator-Driven Reactor System? Can this thing generate high-energy light for nuclear applications? Perhaps to explore nucleonic transitions? Could it be used for generating a powerful ion-beam or proton-beam, as a spallation source in an ADRS? What are the applications here?
