Abstract

Experiments have been proposed to observe non-linear QED effects using intense plane-wave fields. An external photon propagating in the field develops an index of refraction and a reversed polarisation component. The author calculates simple analytic expressions for these effects in the low-energy low-intensity approximation and compares with the constant crossed-field limit and with numerical results.
