Dr Anton Ilderton (Plymouth) and Dr James Edwards (Michoacana) have won a Royal Society travel grant (GBP 6000). This will be used to start a new collaboration between Anton and James on the topic “New contributions for quantum electrodynamics in background fields”. The project duration is one year from August 2018.
The grant was for £600 and used to finance a workshop Geometry, Derived Categories and Moduli Spaces.
Dr Anton Ilderton and Dr Ben King, lecturers in theoretical physics, have won an EPSRC Standard Grant worth GBP 450,000. The award will fund a two year project titled “Quantum phenomena in high-intensity laser-matter interactions”. The goal of the project is to advance our understanding of fundamental quantum physical effects in the interaction between ultra-relativistic
