I was thinking one day and came up with a theory after reading about how scientists were studying anti-matter by using electro magnetic fields to separate matter from the anti-matter they made. It got me thinking would it be possible to use very powerful electromagnetic fields to break down the atomic structure of objects or build things in this way?
Is this atomic reconstruction with electromagnetic fields theoretically possible? That is, is it theoretically possible to use electromagnetic fields generated by a machine to separate the parts of an atom thereby deconstructing an object on the atomic/subatomic level?
I'm not asking about breaking molecular bonds but rather actual atoms apart. If it's possible to break atoms apart with electromagnetic fields, is it also possible to use a similar process to assemble them?
