Rotating curved spacetime signatures from a giant quantum vortex

To experimentally realize a curved spacetime such as a black hole requires a specific relative motion between the excitations and the background medium. One-dimensional supersonic flow, the archetypal example of an acoustic black hole, provides a platform for observations of Hawking radiation in both classical20,21 and quantum fluids9,10,22. More complex phenomena such as Penrose superradiance … Read more
