Speaker: Robert O'Connell (Louisiana State University)
Technical Host: Peter Milonni
TOPIC: Is there Unruh radiation?
We present an exact analysis of an oscillator (the detector) moving under a constant force with respect to zero-temperature vacuum and coupled to a one-dimensional scalar field. We show that this system does not radiate despite the fact that it thermalizes at the Unruh temperature.
