Constraint on Born-Infeld Theory from Light-by-Light Scattering at the LHC

Jonathan Richard Ellis, Nikolaos Mavromatos, Tevong You

Abstract


The recent measurement by ATLAS of light-by-light scattering in LHC Pb- Pb collisions is the first direct evidence for this basic process. We find that it excludes a range of the mass scale of a nonlinear Born-Infeld extension of QED that is
