Can two protons be made "invisible" (or weakly "visible" ) to each other by putting electrons/ electron beam between them?
Well, they can, ...
...but what I am specifically interested in is comes from the experiments of muon-induced nuclear fusion -
...heavier muon replaces an electron in hydrogen atom, making the atom much smaller, to a point where the weak nuclear force can reach further than the charge neutralizing muon shell, making nuclear fusion possible at relatively low pressures and temperatures.
I understand that electrons cant get as close as muons to the nuclear core/ proton in an atomic-like structure, but: in a chamber ..
