Unruh effect and condensate in and out of an accelerated vacuum

  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
We revisit the Unruh effect to investigate how finite acceleration would affect a scalar condensate. We discuss a negative thermal-like correction associated with acceleration. From the correspondence between thermo-field dynamics and acceleration effects we give an explanation for this negative sign. Using this result and solving the gap equation we show that the condensate should increase with larger acceleration.

Thermal hadronization and Hawking–Unruh radiation in QCD
We conjecture that, because of color confinement, the physical vacuum forms an event horizon for quarks and gluons, which can be crossed only by quantum tunneling, i.e., through the QCD counterpart

Signatures of the Unruh effect from electrons accelerated by ultrastrong laser fields.
The radiation resulting from the Unruh effect for strongly accelerated electrons is calculated and it is shown that the photons are created in pairs whose polarizations are perfectly correlated.
