We analyze the response of an Unruh-DeWitt detector moving along an unbounded spatial trajectory in a two-dimensional spatial plane with constant independent magnitudes of both the four-acceleration and of a timelike proper time derivative of the four-accelration. In a Fermi-Walker frame moving with the detector, the direction of the acceleration rotates at a constant rate around a great circle. This is the motion of a charge in a uniform electric field when in the frame of the charge there is… 
Static detectors and circular-geodesic detectors on the Schwarzschild black hole
We examine the response of an Unruh-DeWitt particle detector coupled to a massless scalar field on the (3+1)-dimensional Schwarzschild spacetime, in the Boulware, Hartle-Hawking and Unruh states, for
Does relativistic motion always degrade quantum Fisher information?
We investigate the ultimate estimation precision, characterized by the quantum Fisher information, of a two-level atom as a detector which is coupled to massless scalar field in the Minkowski vacuum.
Relation between quantum effects in general relativity and embedding theory
We discuss results relevant to the relation between quantum effects in a Riemannian space and on the surface appearing as a result of its isometric embedding in a flat space of a higher dimension. We
Measuring acceleration using the Purcell effect
We show that a two-level atom resonantly coupled to one of the modes of a cavity field can be used as a sensitive tool to measure the proper acceleration of a combined atom-cavity system. To achieve
When Hawking into Unruh mapping works
We discuss for which smooth embeddings of a metric into a flat ambient space the Hawking into Unruh mapping takes place? We show that for some new embeddings of the Schwarzschild and
Embeddings of the black holes in a flat space
Two new minimal embeddings of the Schwarzchild-de Sitter metric which smoothly cover both horizons of this metric are obtained.
When does the Hawking into Unruh mapping for global embeddings work?
A bstractWe discuss for which smooth global embeddings of a metric into a Minkowskian spacetime the Hawking into Unruh mapping takes place. There is a series of examples of global embeddings into the


Fulling-Unruh effect in general stationary accelerated frames
We study the generalized Unruh effect for accelerated reference frames that include rotation in addition to acceleration. We focus particularly on the case where the motion is planar, with the
Modified dispersion relations and the response of the rotating Unruh-DeWitt detector
We study the response of a rotating monopole detector that is coupled to a massless scalar field which is described by a nonlinear dispersion relation in flat spacetime. Since it does not seem to be
How often does the Unruh–DeWitt detector click? Regularization by a spatial profile
We analyse within first-order perturbation theory the instantaneous transition rate of an accelerated Unruh–DeWitt particle detector whose coupling to a massless scalar field on four-dimensional
Quantum electrodynamics of accelerated atoms in free space and in cavities
We consider a gedanken experiment with a beam of atoms in their ground state that are accelerated through a single-mode cavity. We show that taking into account of the “counterrotating” terms in the
Considerations on the Unruh effect: causality and regularization
This paper is motivated by the observation that calculations of the Unruh effect based on idealized particle detectors are usually made in a way that involves integrations along the entire detector
Then again, how often does the Unruh–DeWitt detector click if we switch it carefully?
The transition probability in the first-order perturbation theory for an Unruh–DeWitt detector coupled to a massless scalar field in Minkowski space is calculated. It has been shown recently that the
Stationary world lines and the vacuum excitation of noninertial detectors
The stationary world lines, on which quantized field detectors in a vacuum have time-independent excitation spectra, are discussed. They are characterized by the requirement that the geodetic
Unruh effect in storage rings
A uniformly accelerated system will get thermally excited due to interactions with the vacuum fluctuations of the quantum fields. This is the Unruh effect. Also a system accelerated in a circular
Notes on black-hole evaporation
This paper examines various aspects of black-hole evaporation. A two-dimensional model is investigated where it is shown that using fermion-boson cancellation on the stress-energy tensor reduces the
