Background of radio photons from primordial black holes

  title={Background of radio photons from primordial black holes},
  author={Shikhar Mittal and Girish Kulkarni},
We compute the isotropic radiation background due to Hawking emission from primordial black holes (PBHs), and examine if this background is a viable option in explaining the excess radiowave background observed by the ARCADE2 and LWA1 experiments at . 1GHz. We find that even under the extreme assumption that all of the dark matter is in the form of PBHs, the radio brightness temperature induced by Hawking evaporation of PBHs is O(10−46)K, highly subdominant compared to the cosmic microwave…

Radio bounds on the mixed dark matter scenarios of primordial black holes and WIMPs
We study the synchrotron radio emission in the mixed dark matter scenarios consisting of the primordial black holes (PBHs) and the self-annihilating WIMPs (weakly interacting massive particles). The
Limits on primordial black holes detectability with Isatis: a BlackHawk tool
Primordial black holes (PBHs) are convenient candidates to explain the elusive dark matter (DM). However, years of constraints from various astronomical observations have constrained their abundance
Upper limit on the diffuse extragalactic radio background from GZK photon observation
Here we point out that an observation of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Ray (UHECR) photons, “GZK photons”, could provide an upper limit on the level of the ExtraGalactic Radio Background, depending on the
