Phonon Superradiance in Dilute Gas Bose-Einstein Condensates

Midgley, Sarah L W


The analogy between the propagation of a massless scalar field in curved spacetime and the propagation of sound waves in a Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) gives rise to the possibility of observing the analogues of black hole radiance effects, such as Hawking Radiation and superradiance, in the laboratory. In order to provide a solid foundation for realising such analogue gravity models in an experimental setting, we have conducted a numerical investigation of phonon scattering from a...[Show more]
