Quantum Field Theory

Research areas

Modern high-intensity laser systems are about to give access to fundamental physics phenomena. Complementary to particle accelerators, lasers have the potential to probe fundamental properties of nature on the microscopic quantum level. Our group explores this new potential on the theoretical basis of quantum field theory. Our goal is to identify and investigate new high-intensity phenomena and suggest concrete experimental set-ups for their verification. Research thrusts include:

Teaching fields

Prof. Gies provides advanced theory courses, supporting the training of young developing researchers during their early project phases. He gives courses in:

Research methods

Prof. Gies develops and applies a wide range of theoretical methods to describe quantum correlations of light and matter including:
