Joint IPFN-CeFEMA Mini Workshop in Strong Field Physics: from lasers to QCD

Técnico - Alameda campus

Ultra intense electromagnetic fields capable of reaching the Schwinger limit are envisioned in near future experiments. This opens a new realm for the exploration of QED, where strong field effects can play an important role. With the goal of exploring the possible connections between these regimes and other well know strong field theories, such as QCD, IPFN and CeFEMA promote the mini-workshop in Strong Field Physics: from lasers to QCD, on June 25.


2.25 p.m. – Opening session
2.30 p.m. – Challenges in Strong field Abelian Theories, Sebastien Meuren, Princeton University
3.15 p.m. – Strong field QED in the laboratory, Thomas Grismayer, IPFN
3.45 p.m. – Coffee break
4.00 p.m. – Lessons learned from QCD: Chiral Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking, Quark and Gluon Condensates, Emilio Ribeiro, CeFEMA & DF
4.45 p.m.- Open discussion
5.30 p.m.- Closing session

Venue: Abreu Faro amphitheatre, Interdisciplinary building.


The presentations will be geared towards a general audience so students are most welcomed to attend.
