Quantized Klein-Gordon field in a cavity of variable length

  • M. Razavy
  • J. Terning


An effective Hamiltonian is found for the Klein-Gordon field enclosed in a one-dimensional cavity with a moving wall. From this Hamiltonian the number of particles created from the vacuum by the motion of the boundary is determined.
