Hot matter from exploding black holes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The relativistic viscous fluid equations describing the outflow of high temperature matter created via Hawking radiation from microscopic black holes are solved numerically for a realistic equation of state. We focus on black holes with initial temperatures greater than 100 GeV and lifetimes less than 6 days. The spectra of photons and neutrinos are calculated for energies greater than 1 GeV. The most promising route for the observation of these black holes is to search for point sources emitting gamma rays or neutrinos of ever-increasing energy.
