Optical black holes in moving dielectrics
MetadataShow full item record
We study the optical paths of the light rays propagating inside a nonlinear moving dielectric medium. For rapidly moving dielectrics we show the existence of a distinguished surface which resembles, as far as the light propagation is concerned, the event horizon of a black hole. Our analysis clarifies the physical conditions under which electromagnetic analogues of gravitational black holes can eventually be obtained in laboratory. © 2003 The American Physical Society.
