Obviously I do. I read the article. An application is built right into an ELI5 idiots guide breakdown via the following quote from the very first paragraph:

'Reflecting' plasma electrons back & forth .. and applications that could benefit from that.

An example could be fusion, though I certainly wouldn't limit its applications to that nor know if it would be beneficial for that.. ..given I nor others have had enough time to think it over per application(s) (given) that it's a recently published breakthrough/discovery in the field of laser physics.

Any more pedantically trivial snideness you'd like to ask while I still have the patience remaining to entertain responding to them?
