Black Hole Lasers Revisited
The production of Hawking radiation by a single horizon is not depen- dent on the high-frequency dispersion relation of the radiated field. When there are two horizons, however, Corley and Jacobson
VERSION From Vacuum Fluctuations to Radiation : Accelerated Detectors and Black Holes
The vacuum fluctuations that induce the transitions and the thermalisation of a uniformly accelerated two level atom are studied in detail. Their energy content is revealed through the weak
On the phenomenology of quantum gravity : stability properties of Hawking radiation in the presence of ultraviolet violation of local Lorentz invariance
In this thesis, we study several features of Hawking radiation in the presence of ultraviolet Lorentz violations. These violations are implemented by a modified dispersion relation that becomes
WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM STUDYING ACOUSTIC BLACK HOLES
The study of acoustic black holes has been undertaken to provide new insights about the role of high frequencies in black hole evaporation. Because of the infinite gravitational redshift from the
The theory of Hawking radiation in laboratory analogues
Hawking radiation, despite being known to theoretical physics for nearly 40 years, remains elusive and undetected. It also suffers, in its original context of gravitational black holes, from
Hawking radiation without transPlanckian frequencies,” Phys
In a recent work, Unruh showed that Hawking radiation is unaffected by a truncation of free field theory at the Planck scale. His analysis was performed numerically and based on a hydrodynamical
Do black holes radiate
The prediction that black holes radiate due to quantum effects is often considered one of the most secure in quantum field theory in curved space-time. Yet this prediction rests on two dubious
From vacuum fluctuations to radiation. I. Accelerated detectors.
TLDR
The energy and particle fluxes emitted by an accelerated two level atom are analysed in detail and it is shown that the total number of emitted photons is equal to the number of transitions characterizing thermal equilibrium thereby confirming that each internal transition is accompanied by the emission of a Minkowski quantum.
Obstruction of black hole singularity by quantum field theory effects
A bstractWe consider the back reaction of the energy due to quantum fluctuation of the background fields considering the trace anomaly for Schwarzschild black hole. It is shown that it will result in
Hawking Radiation from Higher-Dimensional Black Holes
We review the quantum field theory description of Hawking radiation from evaporating black holes and summarize what is known about Hawking radiation from black holes in more than four space-time

Quantum black hole evaporation.
TLDR
This model allows for certain acausal strong-coupling effects near the singularity that give rise to corrections to the Hawking spectrum and restore the coherence of the out state.
Notes on black-hole evaporation
This paper examines various aspects of black-hole evaporation. A two-dimensional model is investigated where it is shown that using fermion-boson cancellation on the stress-energy tensor reduces the
PHYSICAL INTERPRETATION OF BLACK HOLE EVAPORATION AS A VACUUM INSTABILITY
Using tunneling concepts which account for particle production in the cases of an accelerated detector and a static electric Field in Minkowski space, the more elusive case of black hole evaporation
Lifetime of a black hole.

TLDR
The constraints placed by quantum mechanics upon the lifetime of a black hole are studied in the context of a moving-mirror analog model for the Hawking radiation process, and a lower bound on the time required is placed.
Quantum Purity at a Small Price: Easing a Black Hole Paradox
Following Hawking, it is usual to mimic the effect of collapse space-time geometry on quantum fields in a semi-classical approximation by imposing suitable boundary conditions at the origin of
Black Holes and Thermodynamics
A black hole of given mass, angular momentum, and charge can have a large number of different unobservable internal configurations which reflect the possible different initial configurations of the
Dynamical origin of black-hole radiance
An explanation of the thermal quantum radiance of black holes discovered by Hawking is offered in terms of a black-hole metric undergoing quantum zero-point fluctuations of zero mean in its

The energy and particle fluxes emitted by an accelerated two level atom are analysed in detail and it is shown that the total number of emitted photons is equal to the number of transitions characterizing thermal equilibrium thereby confirming that each internal transition is accompanied by the emission of a Minkowski quantum.
Black-hole evaporation and ultrashort distances.
  • Jacobson

TLDR
Two arguments for black-hole radiation are given which assume a Planck length cutoff, and they strongly suggest that, in spite of reasonable doubt about the usual derivations of black- hole radiation, a "safe" derivation which avoids the authors' ignorance of ultrashort-distance physics can likely be formulated.
