O'Connell, R.F., 1968: Effect of the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron on spontaneous pair production in a strong magnetic field. Phys. Rev. Lett., 21, 397-398, doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.21.397.

Taking into account the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron by adding the socalled Pauli anomalous interaction term to the usual Dirac Hamiltonian for an electron in a constant magnetic field H, we conclude that spontaneous pair creation may occur for values of H of the order of m2c4 / e3, a "critical field" beyond which classical electro-dynamics breaks down.
