Cosmic problems for condensed matter experiment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


Condensed matter analogs of the cosmological environment have raised the hope that laboratory experiments can be done to test theoretical ideas in cosmology. I will describe Unruh's sonic analog of a black hole ("dumbhole") that can be used to test Hawking radiation, and some recent proposals on how one might be able to create a dumbhole in the lab. In this context, I also discuss an experiment already done on the helium-3 AB system by the Lancaster group.
