Detectable Electron Wavelength

What is the smallest wavelength an electron can have before it is no longer detectable?

I think anything generally shorter than 10^-18 m for wavelength

In the lecture the professor said that gammas rays were the lowest, for sure, measured wavelength at 10^-12, but that anything below 10^-15 was unlikely, and that anything below 10^-18 was undetectable. He said that on the quizzes and test though, the answers were going to be obviously small, at around 10^-30.
