Black Holes and Wormholes in spinor polariton condensates

By D. D. Solnyshkov, H. Flayac and G. Malpuech


We propose a new system for the study of event horizons and black holes - a Bose-Einstein condensate of exciton-polaritons. Hawking radiation from a closed horizon in 2D is observed in numerical experiments. We simulate inter-Universe and intra-Universe wormholes capitalizing on the spinor nature of polariton condensates and on the spin dependence of polariton-polariton interactions.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figure
