Dominance of γ-γ electron-positron pair creation in a plasma driven by high-intensity lasers

Posted by in category: quantum physics

Electron-positron pair generation from nonlinear quantum electrodynamics is predicted at high intensities that are, so far, beyond experimental capabilities. Here, simulations predict a high yield of positrons can be obtained from gamma-gamma photon collisions in the linear regime, using counter-propagating pulses and a microstructured target.
