  1. 1. Pair production, vacuum birefringence and radiation reaction in strong field QED

    Author : Greger Torgrimsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; worldline instantons; lightfront quantisation; radiation reaction; vacuum birefringence; nonperturbative pair production;

    Abstract : In this thesis we consider three QED phenomena in strong electromagnetic fields: Schwinger pair production, vacuum birefringence and radiation reaction. We study electron-positron pair production in a variety of field configurations and, using complex worldline instantons, reveal new insights into the case of fields with lightlike inhomogeneities.

  2. 2. Non-Perturbative Quantum Field Theory in Extreme Environments

    Author : Per Liljenberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : pair production; Bose-Einstein condensation; functional representation; Schwinger model; external field; boson stars; temperature; magnetisation;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to describe some physical systems which can be treated by non-perturbative methods in quantum field theory. In the thesis we study systems described by quadratic Hamiltonians, possibly extended with an external electromagnetic field and/or with a thermal heat bath. READ MORE

  3. 3. Laser Sensing for Quality Control and Classification – Applications for the Food Industry, Ecology and Medicine

    Author : Patrik Lundin; Atomfysik; []

    Abstract : Monitoring constitutes a cornerstone, both for efficient control of optimized industrial processes and for obtaining knowledge about non-controlled, natural phenomena. This thesis is all about monitoring, or measurements. In this case the primary information is gathered with light, and in a non-intrusive, and usually a stand-off or remote way. READ MORE
