Since black holes are hard to observe, much of what we know about them is merely theoretical. This is because it is incredibly hard to measure black holes, as they absorb the light around them, and to send a probe near them would mean to lose the probe. …
“New research by a mixed team of scientists from UK, US, Canada and Israel have made a breakthrough discovery. By bounding a graphene flake to a powerful magnetic source in order to create a high-fidelity quantum hologram, on par with the real characteristics of an actual black hole, due to the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model followed by the material….”
“The experiment requires the electrons in a graphene flake. By imprinting randomness onto the electrons, the scientist observes the electron-electron relationships required for the SYK model. The device required for the experiment does not need advanced materials and is easy to replicate and assemble, allowing many prospective scientists to conduct their own experiments. It is hoped that these experiments will advance our understanding regarding black holes, allowing further understanding of how they work and how do they appear.”
The study was published recently in the Physical Review Letters.
