Signatures of the quantum vacuum

MPSD Seminar
The quantum vacuum is one of the most counter-intuitive concepts of quantum electrodynamics. Whereas the classical vacuum refers to a region of space that is devoid of any particles or fields, its quantum counterpart contains fluctuating electromagnetic fields even in the most idealised case. As predicted by macroscopic quantum electrodynamics, the structure of these virtual photons can be significantly altered by the presence of magnetodielectric bodies or media. The signature of the quantum vacuum is manifest in the interaction of virtual photons with charged matter. [more]

Symmetries in high harmonic generation and their application to novel ultrafast spectroscopies

MPSD Seminar
The analysis of symmetries and their associated selection rules is extremely useful in many fields of science. The field of nonlinear optics is no exception. In the early days of nonlinear optics, symmetries were used to derive whether particular nonlinear optical processes are allowed/forbidden according to the medium’s point-group. This approach is believed to be complete, and is regularly taught in graduate classes. [more]
