An electron acts like a particle and a wave, waves can be stretched. In my dim and distant past someone told me about an experiment that went like this; Two highly charged plates are put close together so electrons jump from one to the other. The plates are then pulled apart at high speed thus stretching the electrons(?).
Not 100% sure about this one, may have been a dream, any infomation about such ideas would be appreciated.
