Quantum Field Theory at highest intensities

Homepage: Quantum Field Theory

Modern high-intensity laser systems are about to give access to fundamental physics phenomena. Complementary to particle accelerators, lasers have the potential to probe fundamental properties of nature on the microscopic quantum level. Our group explores this new potential on the theoretical basis of quantum field theory. Our goal is to identify and investigate new high-intensity phenomena and suggest concrete experimental set-ups for their verification.­
