# Escape from supercooling with or without bubbles: gravitational wave signatures

@article{Lewicki2021EscapeFS, title={Escape from supercooling with or without bubbles: gravitational wave signatures}, author={Marek Lewicki and Oriol Pujol{\`a}s and Ville Vaskonen}, journal={The European Physical Journal C}, year={2021} }

Quasi-conformal models are an appealing scenario that can offer naturally a strongly supercooled phase transition and a period of thermal inflation in the early Universe. A crucial aspect for the viability of these models is how the Universe escapes from the supercooled state. One possibility is that thermal inflation phase ends by nucleation and percolation of true vacuum bubbles. This route is not, however, always efficient. In such case another escape mechanism, based on the growth of… Expand
