Mini Black Holes and extra-dimensions

Aurélien BARRAU & Julien GRAIN

Small black holes in astrophysics : PBHs

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

PBH could have formed in the early universe

- Standard mass spectrum in the early universe
- Softening of the equation of state (Canuto , Khlopov)
- Quasi-critical phenomenon (Choptuik)
- Double inflation (Khlopov)
- Phase transition (Hawking , Steinhardt , Khlopov)

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

Direct antiprotons emission

- Individual emission
- Convoluted with the mass spectrum today

Unlike the CMB or the large scale structures, PBH give informations on small scale

PRIMORDIAL BLACK HOLES ARE A UNIQUE COSMOLOGICAL PROBE

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

Cosmological constrain:PBH fraction β

PBHs are the only way to constrain small scales in the primordial power spectrum

Hypothesis: bump in the mass variance

( Starobinsky , Polarski )

Antiprotons constrains

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

Particle physics beyond the standard model with black holes ?

- To avoid entropy overproduction, an upper limit on Trh is obtainted with gravitinos
- If cosmic-rays from PBHs are detected, it leads to an upper limit on the Hubble mass at reheating so it leads to a lower limit on Trh
- Combining both lead to constrains on the gravitino mass

Lower limit on the gravitino

mass as a function of the PBH

PERSPECTIVES

Gravitinos emission from PBHs

- n<1.18 : the most stringent limit at small scale
- Positive running excluded

- Future experiment like AMS will measure the antideuteron flux
- Improvement ~ factor 10 in sensitivity

From Dimopoulos & al. 2001

Interesting idea : using mini black holes a resonances

- Search for SUSY particles

Gauss-Bonnet Black Holes?

- General Relativity:
- Low energy limit of String Theory:

Non-monotonic behaviour

taking full benefit of evaporation process

(integration over black hole’s lifetime)

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

The flux Computation

- Analytical results in the high energy limit

The grey-body factors are constant

- is the most convenient variable

Harris, Kanti JHEP 010, 14 (2003)

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

The Flux Computation (ATLAS detection)

- Planck scale = 1TeV
- Number of Black Holes produced at the LHC derived by Landsberg
- Hard electrons, positrons and photons sign the Black Hole decay spectrum
- ATLAS resolution

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

The Results -measurement procedure-

- For different input values of (D,), particles emitted by the full evaporation process are generated

spectra are reconstructed for each mass bin

- A analysis is performed

J. Grain, A. Barrau, LPSC-Grenoble

The Results-discussion-

- For a planck scale of order a TeV, ATLAS can distinguish between the case with and the case without Gauss-Bonnet term.

Important progress in the construction of a full quantum theory of gravity

- The results can be refined by taking into account more carefully the endpoint of Hawking evaporation

Calculation of Greybody factors (1)

- A potential barrier appears in the equation of motion of fields around a black hole:
- Black holes radiation spectrum is decomposed into three part:

De Sitter horizon

Tortoise coordinate

Potential barrier

Black hole’s horizon

Break vacuum fluctuations

Cross the potential barrier

Phase space term

Calculation of Greybody factors (2)

De Sitter horizon

Analytical calculations

Numerical calculations

Equation of motion analytically solved at the black hole’s and the de Sitter horizon

Equation of motion numerically solved from black hole’s horizon to the de Sitter one

Calculation of Greybody factors -results for scalar in dS universe-

d=4

The divergence comes from the presence of two horizons

Cosmological constrain using PBH

- Small black holes could have been formed in the early universe
- Stringent constrains on the amount of PBH in the galaxy:

The anti-proton flux emitted by PBH is evaluating using an improved propagation scheme for cosmic rays

- This leads to constrain on the PBH fraction
- New window of detection using low energy anti-deuteron
