Abstract
We illustrate scenarios in which Hawking radiation collected in finite regions of a reservoir provides temporary access to the interior of black holes through transient entanglement “islands.” Whether these islands appear and the amount of time for which they dominate — sometimes giving way to a thermalization transition — is controlled by the amount of radiation we probe. In the first scenario, two reservoirs are coupled to an eternal black hole. The second scenario involves two…
