The PVLAS experiment aims at the observation and measurement of the effect of magnetic birefringence of vacuum (MBV) predicted by Quantum Electrodynamics. We describe here the new PVLAS apparatus which is currently being setup in INFN Ferrara. The apparatus features two rotating permanent dipole magnets and an ellipsometer operating under UHV with a high finesse Fabry–Perot cavity.

Abstract

The PVLAS experiment aims at the observation and measurement of the effect of magnetic birefringence of vacuum (MBV) predicted by Quantum Electrodynamics. We describe here the new PVLAS apparatus which is currently being setup in INFN Ferrara. The apparatus features two rotating permanent dipole magnets and an ellipsometer operating under UHV with a high finesse Fabry–Perot cavity.
