My research interests span over general relativity, quantum field theory, cosmology, etc. Recently, I focus mainly on quantum radiation by moving mirrors (aka mirror induced radiation MIR) in flat spacetime, which may be an analog of Hawking radiation emitted by black holes in curved spacetimes. MIR in 1+1D spacetime with a relativistic, perfect/partially reflective, point mirror and MIR in 1+3D spacetime with a non-relativistic, perfect, infinite-size plane mirror have been studied. My recent study is to take into account the effect of diffraction due to the finite size of a plane mirror in 1+3D and try to extend the MIR in 1+3D to relativistic regime.
