The latest issue of Science magazine claims, the world’s first “artificial black hole” has been born at a laboratory of Southeast University, China.
This magazine said that, despite its mini size, the newly created “artificial black hole” does not let any form of matter escape its terrible gravitational field, including sunlight. However, unlike the black holes in the universe where humans are always worried about a danger of destruction, now we can completely put these “black holes” in our bags.
“Actually, the black hole we created is not quite a black hole in the strict sense of the word,” said Cui Tiequn and Cheng Qiang, of Southeast China University, who led the research program. this”. According to Professor Cheng Qiang, they use a simulation device to create types of “artificial black holes”.
Currently, this device only absorbs electromagnetic waves. However, Cheng Qiang believes that in the future it can also absorb light. And apart from electromagnetic waves, this “artificial black hole” cannot absorb any matter.
According to Cheng Qiang, the “artificial black hole” they created is not only not the dangerous type of “black hole” known. On the contrary, in the future it can help people better absorb solar energy.
Since the beginning of this year, two American scientists, Evgenii Narimanov and Alexander Kildishev, have published theoretical arguments and design plans to create a “mini black hole”. The plan they proposed is to create an “artificial black hole” that simulates some of the properties of a black hole, capable of sucking up radioactive material that appears near it and moving it into the center of the “black hole” in a spiral.
However, when both Evgenii and Alexander, two scientists from Purdue University, did not have time to realize their ideas, an “artificial black hole” was born in China.
In fact, there is a huge difference between the artificial black hole created by the two Chinese scientists and the real black hole in the universe. This is not only in size, but the principle of existence of these two types of black holes is completely different.
Black holes in the universe can “swallow” all matter, including light because of its extremely high density of matter. Meanwhile, an “artificial black hole” is a device that simulates the behavior of light waves when being sucked in by a black hole. This device causes the approaching light wave to bend and draw it to the center.
This means that although both types of black holes produce the same result for light waves appearing in the surroundings, the light reception is completely different.
