Certain nuclear isotopes are metastable and can undergo stimulated emission, called the Mossbauer effect. Normaly cryogenic cooling is required. But what if the isotope is trapped in a plasma-ion lattice and laser, magneticaly or otherwise electrodynamicaly cooled?
Metastable nuclear isotopes don't have fission-class energy yields, but are still 10-100 times more powerfull than chemicals.
