Authors: Rojas-Lorenzo, G.; Rubayo-Soneira, J.; Miret-Artes, S.; Pollak, E. Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW A Publication date: 2020/02/24 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.101.022506 Abstract: Quantum reflection of thermal He atoms from various surfaces (glass slide, GaAs wafer, flat, and structured Cr) at grazing conditions is studied within the elastic close-coupling formalism. Comparison with the experimental results of Zhao et [...]

Closed timelike curves and chronology protection in quantum and classical simulators

2020-07-20T11:26:56+02:00Tags: , , |

Authors: Martin-Vazquez, Gonzalo; Sabin, Carlos Contribution: Article Journal: CLASSICAL AND QUANTUM GRAVITY Publication date: 2020/02/20 DOI: 10.1088/1361-6382/ab5f3f Abstract: In principe, general relativity seems to allow the existence of closed timelike curves (CTC). However, when quantum effects are considered, it is likely that their existence is prevented by some kind of chronological protection mechanism, as Hawking conjectured. [...]
