Synthetic gravitational horizons in low-dimensional quantum matter
We propose a class of lattice models realizable in a wide range of setups whose low-energy dynamics exactly reduces to Dirac fields subjected to (1 + 1)-dimensional [(1 + 1)D] gravitational
Synthetic Unruh effect in cold atoms
We propose to simulate a Dirac field near an event horizon using ultracold atoms in an optical lattice. Such a quantum simulator allows for the observation of the celebrated Unruh effect. Our
Quantum simulation of Unruh radiation
The exploration of quantum phenomena in a curved spacetime is an emerging interdisciplinary area at the interface between general relativity1–4, thermodynamics4–6 and quantum information7,8. One
Artificial event horizons in Weyl semimetal heterostructures and their non-equilibrium signatures
We investigate transport in type-I/type-II Weyl semimetal heterostructures that realize effective black- or white-hole event horizons. We provide an exact solution to the scattering problem at normal
Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity
The ever growing relevance of general relativity to astrophysics and cosmology continues to motivate the publication of new textbooks which put the theory in a fresh perspective informed by recent
Complexity and entanglement for thermofield double states
Motivated by holographic complexity proposals as novel probes of black hole spacetimes, we explore circuit complexity for thermofield double (TFD) states in free scalar quantum field theories using
$\mathcal{PT}$ symmetry-protected exceptional cones and analogue Hawking radiation
Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians, which effectively describe dissipative systems, and analogue gravity models, which simulate properties of gravitational objects, comprise seemingly different areas of
Emergence of curved light-cones in a class of inhomogeneous Luttinger liquids
The light-cone spreading of entanglement and correlation is a fundamental and ubiquitous feature of homogeneous extended quantum systems. Here we point out that a class of inhomogenous Luttinger
