  • What is a Black Hole?

  • Black-Hole Bomb(BHB)

  • Mini Black Holes

  • BHB @LHC

Escape velocity
Escape velocity

What happens if gravity

becomes very strong?

Dark s tar
“Dark Star”

Pierre-Simon Laplace


If gravity is strong enough,

even light could not escape the star.

General relativity

“Matter tells spacetime

how to curve,


spacetime tells matter

how to move.”

John Wheeler


Schwarzschild geometry

Karl Schwarzschild (1873~1916)

Black hole by j wheeler
“Black Hole” by J. Wheeler

The term black hole was coined in 1967 during a talk he gave at the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS).


John Wheeler (1911~2008)

Schwarzschild radius

Sun: R=2.95km

Earth: R=8.86mm

Bekenstein and bh entropy
Bekensteinand BH entropy

The black hole area never decreases.

  • Black holes have entropy.

  • Black hole entropy is proportional to its area.


Jacob Bekenstein(1947~)

Generalized 2nd Law

Hawking radiation
Hawking Radiation

entropy ~ heat ~ radiation

Summary of basic bh properties
Summary of basic BH properties

  • There is a singularity inside a BH with infinite gravity.

  • There are event horizons for every BHs.

  • Even light cannot escape

  • from the inside of the horizon to outside.

  • Time goes slower as a clock approaches the horizon,

  • and stops at the horizon, for an outside observer.


Cont d

  • Black holes can have angular momentum and charges.

  • Black holes have ENTROPY.

  • The BH entropy is proportional to its horizontal area.

  • Black holes emit Hawking radiation.

  • The Hawking temperature is

  • inversely proportional to the BH mass.


Rotational energy is extracted to the scattered particle.

Easy to make BH in XDs

  • Actual Planck mass is not so large.

  • >>> Actual gravitational constant is not so small.

  • >>> Small mss is enough to produce BH.

  • >>> BH can be produced at low energy.

  • >>> LHC can produce BH!

At some point the superradiance stops when


  • Rotating mini BHs can undergo the superradiance.

  • If the emitted particles are reflected by a mirror,

  • the system can be a Bomb.

  • LHC could produce the BHB.
