The quantum vacuum is unstable under the influence of an external electric field, as the virtual electron-positron dipole pairs can gain energy from the external field. If the field is sufficiently strong, these virtual particles can gain the threshold pair creation energy 2mc^2 and become real Author: Gerald Dunne. The best way to get a handle on odd quantum effects is to look at what the effect would mean physically. One prediction made from the idea of vacuum fluctuation is that a strong enough electric field should polarize those fluctuations. In this case we are talking about polarizing virtual electron-positron pairs.

  This is the new ether of the 21st century. The electromagnetic and gravitational fields, as well as the fields transferring the weak and the strong interactions, all represent different types of collective motion of the quantum vacuum.” The book is packed full with parallels between fundamental QFT in the Core Theory and condensed matter physics.   I have answered this question on Quora so many times I could have written a book. In fact, I did write a book, “Fields of Color”, and here is the answer taken from the book. (If you can’t afford $ for the eversion, you can read the final Chapt.

In this thesis, nonperturbative pair creation from the quantum field theoretic ground state in the presence of strong macroscopic gauge fields is studied. Employing different approaches such as the string inspired worldline formalism, the worldline instanton method, semiclassical WKB techniques as well as quantum kinetic theory, we investigate various aspects of this so-called Schwinger effect.   Description; Chapters; Supplementary; Forces of the Quantum Vacuum presents a number of theoretical approaches to Casimir, van der Waals and Casimir–Polder forces that have been fruitfully employed in mainstream research, and also reviews the experimental evidence for Casimir forces. Beginning with basic ideas in quantum mechanics and building its way to a sophisticated form .

It is the object of study in the Large Hadron Collider and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, and is related to the so-called vacuum structure of strong interactions.

The QED vacuum is the field-theoretic vacuum of quantum is the lowest energy state (the ground state) of the electromagnetic field when the fields are quantized. When Planck's constant is hypothetically allowed to approach zero, QED vacuum is converted to classical vacuum, which is to say, the vacuum of classical electromagnetism.

1. Vacuum Field fluctuations occur only because the field itself is stretching. Which means that at a point they break and hence create a virtual particle. In other words these breakage in the vacuum field gives rise to causes for big-bang and hence the reason for origin of a new Universe.

General remarks are given on processes in an intense electromagnetic field and their description is detailed. This Advanced Study Institute (ASI) brought together two distinct "schools of approach" to Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) in the presence of intense, external, electromagnetic fields, in an effort to lay a joint foundation for a needed theoretical explanation of the sharp e+ e- "resonances".

Since the work of Sauter, and Heisenberg, Euler and Köckel, it has been understood that vacuum polarization effects in quantum electrodynamics (QED) predict remarkable new phenomena such as light-light scattering and pair production from vacuum.

However, these fundamental effects are difficult to probe experimentally because they are very weak, and they are difficult to analyze theoretically Cited by: Vacuum effects in a spatially homogeneous and isotropic cosmological background.

The interesting thing about the electric and magnetic fields in quantum electrodynamics is that their ground state is represented by zero photons. Vacuum phantom effects have also been proposed at the molecular level for DNA.

Mind-blowing, right.? Well, you might as well forget about it. In fact, there are no particles and no waves; just fields. Both "particles" and "waves" are merely two ways in which we naively interpret quantum f.
