1. Introduction

QED basic vertex (interaction):

e e e+

direct on-shell pair production (PP), e + e , forbidden by energy-momentum conservation hence, add external e.m. (photon) eld: e.g. laser

Two regimes:

1

low intensity high BG frequency low-order perturbation theory standard QED regime

1

high intensity low BG frequency multi-photon (high-order) processes important new QED regime realised by high-power optical lasers!

2. Vacuum Polarisation

Optical Theorem

l.h.s.: total (Breit-Wheeler) PP probability r.h.s.: (Im of) vacuum polarisation modied by laser eld

Tom Heinzl Laser Quantum Electrodynamics

[A] = + +...

describes both modied light propagation and PP (via Im) low-energy limit (, 0) = Heisenberg-Euler for special BGs exact one-loop results available

Tom Heinzl

E = B = const, E B (frozen plane wave) BG Lorentz invariants vanish: only two remaining invariants: k 2 = 2 (1 n)2

B k (probe) K (BG) E z

3. Vacuum Birefringence

Two small parameters:

dimensionless probe frequency: /me dimensionless eld strength: E /Ec X-ray probe ( 5 keV) and ultra-high power laser (I = 1026 W/cm2 ):
