The attractive electrical force between the negatively charged electrons and the atom's positively charged nucleus serves as the container's walls.
The highly charged, heavy nuclei of the resulting ions exert such a strong electrical force on the few remaining electrons that subtle quantum and relativistic effects -- normally barely detectable--are greatly amplified.
They detected an unusual quantum-mechanical effect in which neutrons seem to respond to a static electric charge without "feeling" the charge's electrical force.
