Paper Abstract

Quantum electrodynamics (QED) in strong laser fields is a vivid area of research, which will soon become systematically testable experimentally. We present analyses of three aspects of strong-field QED: First we show that the precise shape of ultra-intense few-cycle laser pulses is determinable via nonlinear Compton scattering and second that due to photon-photon interactions mediated by the quantum vacuum it is possible to set up a double slit experiment comprising only light. Finally we consider nonperturbative electron-positron pair creation.
