Giant Unruh effect in hyperbolic metamaterial waveguides.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that photons in metamaterial waveguides may behave as massive quasi-particles accelerating at up to 1024  g, which is about 12 orders of magnitude larger than the surface acceleration near a stellar black hole.
Enhancement of Unruh effect in high-intensity laser fields using hyperbolic metamaterials
High-intensity laser fields acting on free electrons were proposed to create sufficiently large accelerations to enable detection of Unruh radiation. However, the currently achievable electron
Black hole in a waveguide: Hawking radiation or self-phase modulation?
Recently it was suggested that Hawking radiation may be observed in a nonlinear electromagnetic waveguide upon propagation of an optical pulse. We show that the spectral characteristics of the
Superluminal Travel from Quantised Inertia
Special relativity predicts that the inertial mass of an object is infinite at the speed of light (c) causing zero acceleration and producing a cosmic speed limit. Here, a new model for inertia is
0 O ct 2 01 0 Unruh Effect and Holography
We study the Unruh effect on the dynamics of quarks and mesons in the context of AdS5/CFT4 correspondence. We adopt an AdS5 metric with the boundary Rindler horizon extending into a bulk Rindler-like
Inertial mass from Unruh temperatures
It has been proposed that inertia can be explained as follows: when objects accelerate in one direction, a Rindler horizon forms in the other direction suppressing Unruh radiation on that side and
Galaxy rotations from quantised inertia and visible matter only
It is shown here that a model for inertial mass, called quantised inertia, or MiHsC (Modified inertia by a Hubble-scale Casimir effect) predicts the rotational acceleration of the 153 good quality
Was Polchinski wrong? Colombeau distributional Rindler space-time with distributional Levi-Cività connection induced vacuum dominance. Unruh effect revisited
The vacuum energy density of free scalar quantum field ϕ in a Rindler distributional space-time with distributional Levi-Cività connection is considered. It has been widely believed that, except in
Quantised inertia from relativity and the uncertainty principle
It is shown here that if we assume that what is conserved in nature is not simply mass-energy, but rather mass-energy plus the energy uncertainty of the uncertainty principle, and if we also assume
