An electric analogue to gravity induced vacuum dominance

V.K. Oikonomou1

Abstract

It is shown that when a strong electric field is turned on as a background in a charged scalar field, the vacuum state energy of the scalar field becomes exponentially amplified. This is an analogue to gravity induced vacuum amplification, where the vacuum state energy becomes exponentially amplified for some geometries.
