Sonic Superradiance in Bose Einstein Condensates

Reid, Andrew, J. S


There are a number of interesting phenomena that are predicted to be a result of the behaviour of general relativity close to a black hole. The most well known of these is Hawking radiation. Although well established, the theory of Hawking radiation is unsupported by experiment, since black holes cannot be investigated in the lab. However, there is a strong similarity between the equations governing the behaviour of a sound wave in inviscid irrotational fluid systems and a massless scalar field...[Show more]
