  • We briefly review the pilot ideas on the generation of electromagnetic (EM)-pulses much shorter than already available sub-femtosecond pulses, and outline inroads and venues into the physics of pulses much shorter than an attosecond (10 seconds), in particular the so called zeptosecond (10 seconds) and yoctosecond (10 seconds) pulses that may allow one to operate on QED and nuclear, as well as quark-gluon time plasma scales. We also briefly outline the entire time-scale available in the… CONTINUE READING
