Classic 'Double-Slit' Experiment Using Time Instead of Space

In summary, the article discusses a paper that recreates the classic 'Double-Slit' experiment using time rather than space. The paper introduces the concept of double-slit time diffraction at optical frequencies, which some may find intriguing. However, others may view it as hype and not necessarily groundbreaking. The idea of modulating light quickly has been explored before in neutrino oscillation experiments.

I think the go-fast optics in the actual paper is a lot of fun and the result is satisfying. I dont know whether this expands the state of the art for modulating light fastly (fastly being a Trumpism).
The rest of the hype is just silly IMHO.

I suspected as much. Thank you.

is there actually anything new in it?
That's effectively what neutrino oscillation experiments have been doing for decades.
