  • New black hole simulator may shed more light on contradiction in fundamental physics


    Fig.1: Accelerating mirror mimics evaporating black hole. Left: Black hole Hawking evaporation and the trapping of the partner modes near the horizon. Right: An accelerating mirror also has a horizon and can also emit Hawking particles and trap their partner modes. The analogy between these two systems may be appreciated via Einstein’s equivalence principle 圖一:加速反射鏡可以模擬黑洞霍京蒸發。左:黑洞霍京輻射及其被困在黑洞事件視平線的對偶型。右:一個加速的反射鏡也有視平線,也會輻射霍京粒子及困住對偶型。兩者的相似性可以從愛因思坦的「等價原理」來理解。 […]
