Lecture Course delivered to PhD Students in Sweden

As an expert in intense laser physics, Dr Anton Ilderton, Lecturer in Theoretical Physics in SoCEM, was recently invited to deliver a lecture course to PhD students in Sweden. During the week of 14-18 May Anton visited Chalmers University, in Gothenburg, and gave daily lectures to physics graduates from all over Sweden. The course gave an introduction to the theory and phenomenology of quantum physics in intense laser fields, or “Strong Field QED”. Anton is part of Plymouth’s world-leading research group on intense laser-matter interactions.
