# Quantum black holes in the horizon quantum mechanics model at the Large Hadron Collider

@article{Gingrich2020QuantumBH, title={Quantum black holes in the horizon quantum mechanics model at the Large Hadron Collider}, author={Douglas M. Gingrich and Brennan Undseth}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2020}, volume={102} }

Quantum black hole production at the Large Hadron Collider is investigated using the horizon quantum mechanics model. This model has novel implications for how black holes might be observed in collider experiments. Black hole production is predicted to be possible below the Planck scale, thus leading to the intriguing possibility that black holes could be produced even if the Planck scale is slightly above the collider centre of mass energy. In addition, the usual anticipated resonance in the…

The very successful 2010–2012 operation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has changed the landscape of particle physics. The long-awaited Higgs boson has been discovered, and—yet—there are no signs…

Black Hole Cross Section at the Large Hadron Collider

- Physics
- 2006

Black hole production at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was first discussed in 1999. Since then, much work has been performed in predicting the black hole cross section. In light of the start up of…

High-energy colliders as black hole factories: The End of short distance physics
