Research in high energy/particle/gravitational physics.
This is the homepage of Anthony Hartin. I am a Staff Scientist at the Ludwig Maximillian University of Munich. I am a theoretical physicist studying physics processes in strong background fields, such as the electromagnetic fields provided by an intense laser, or the gravitational fields in the early universe. On the various tabs you will find links to more details of my research, my latest academic papers and selected recent talks.
My career research direction is a theoretical consideration of particle processes in strong back ground fields. It turns out that the quantum vacuum is not empty, but consists of virtual charges which respond to strong electromagnetic fields. From the point of view of an electron, the vacuum+background field looks like a dispersive medium. The electron consequently decays, implying a lifetime, and resonant transitions.
