About the connection between vacuum birefringence and the light-light scattering amplitude
J. Haïssinski1, S. Dagoret1, M. Urban1, F. Zomer1

Birefringence phenomena stemming from vacuum polarization are revisited in the framework of coherent scattering. Based on photon-photon scattering, our analysis brings out the direct connection between this process and vacuum birefringence. We show how this procedure can be extended to the Kerr and the Cotton-Mouton birefringence in vacuum, thus providing a unified treatment of various polarization schemes, including those involving static fields.
