New ways of controlling quasi-free and free electrons by means of phase-controlled ultrashort laser pulses are demonstrated: from strong-field physics in the conducting 2-d material graphene and at the surface of nanostructures, to laser acceleration of free electrons with a nanophotonic structure, and the demonstration of the longitudinal Kapitza-Dirac effect.
