The 21 cm signal produced by non-evaporating primordial black holes (PBHs) is investigated. X-ray photons emitted by accretion of matter onto a PBH ionize and heat the intergalactic medium (IGM) gas near the PBH. Using a simple analytic model, we show that this X-ray heating can produce an observable differential 21 cm brightness temperature. The region of the observable 21 cm brightness temperature can extend to 1-10 Mpc comoving distance from a PBH depending on the PBH mass. The angular power… Expand
