    Hi,
    I would like to ask whether the strong electromagnetic fields can curve space time?

    Thank you

    Yes, but not directly. EM field's contain energy, which is equivalent to mass, so the energy of the EM field is considered in the stress-energy tensor which determines the gravitational bending of the space-time continuum.
    I think, I can't truly claim to understand GR.
