Nonlinear quantum electrodynamics in vacuum and plasmas
2010 (English)In: New frontiers in advanced plasma physics, American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010, 24-34 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We consider high field physics due to quantum electrodynamics, in particular those that can be studied in the next generation of laser facilities. Effective field theories based on the Euler-Heisenberg Lagrangian are briefly reviewed, and examples involving plasma- and vacuum physics are given.
