Abstract: High order harmonic generation by extremely intense, interacting, electromagnetic waves in thequantum vacuum is investigated within the framework of the Heisenberg–Euler formalism. Twointersecting plane waves of finite duration are considered in the case of general polarizations.Detailed finite expressions are obtained for the case where only the first Poincar ́einvariantdoesnot vanish. Yields of high harmonics in this case are most effective.
