First Acoustic Black Hole Created

bsy_at_play Re:Sort of Hawking Radiation (165 comments)

heisenberg: uncertainty in energy times uncertainty in time has a lower bound. what is the energy of the phonons? given the small time that heisenberg allows the virtual phonon pairs to exist, how far can the phonons travel? without actually working out the numbers, my seat of the pants guess is that the number of virtual phonon pairs for which one member crosses the acoustic event horizon will be vanishingly small.
