Strong-Field QED

Simulation of effects of vacuum polarization occurring in a laser field.
Simulation of effects of vacuum polarization occurring in a laser field.

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.
