This could lead to a new source of energy.

Very promising. The only worry is that some creep will find a way to weaponize this.

Ok, I am neither a physicist, nor totally naive, but HOW does one "melt" a quark? What phenomenal temperature and pressure would be needed? Quarks do not sit around on their own, are held together by the gluons of the Strong force, have not done so since trillionths of a second after the Big Bang!

Quarks can be a constituent of plasma at 500 Gev, which is 10,443,612.83..... F. that's damned hot! Actually, hotter than the interior of the sun.
"Strong force" should have been strong nuclear force.

A little more reading (By coincidence, I am almost finished with "The Particle at the end of the Universe," by Sean Carroll, who was, maybe is still, involved with the LHC) finds that the temp. above is that which held prior to what is known as the "Big Band Nulceosynthesis," and MUCH hotter than the interior of the sun.
