Infrared divergences in plane wave backgrounds
2012 (English)In: Physical Review D, ISSN 1550-7998, Vol. 86, no 8, 085037- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We show that the emission of soft photons via nonlinear Compton scattering in a pulsed plane wave (laser field) is in general infrared divergent. We give examples of both soft and soft-collinear divergences, and we pay particular attention to the case of crossed fields in both classical and quantum theories.
