DeLLight: Slowing down light in vacuum with intense laser pulses

The quantum description of the vacuum predicts that the speed of light should decrease when the vacuum is subjected to intense electromagnetic fields.The DeLLight experiment team at IJCLab's PHE Cluster seeks to measure this effect by deflecting light in a vacuum using ultra-intense laser pulses delivered by the LASERIX platform at IJCLab.
