While I make absolutely no claim in understanding how this was achieved, researchers were able to create particles with a negative mass as well as lasers with low power requirements. Could this help towards fusion?

This alone is “interesting and exciting from a physics perspective,” says Nick Vamivakas, an associate professor of quantum optics and quantum physics at Rochester’s Institute of Optics. “But it also turns out the device we’ve created presents a way to generate laser light with an incrementally small amount of power.”
