On possible small black holes identification at the Earth surface through variation of gravitational field andγ-background

  • A. P. Trofimenko

Small black holes which can be located in the Earth interior are proposed as sources of correlated short-time variation of gravitational field (gravitoimpulses) andγ-radiation in (γ-background variation) due to the Hawking effect. We estimate the intensity and spectrum of photon radiation for black holes with masses of 108–1016 g and consider possibility registration of them after absorption in terrestrial matter or in air in the correlation with gravitoimpulses. Restrictions of short-time gravitational field variation by means existing devices give possible range of black hole masses of the order of 1014 g which produce high penetrativeγ-radiation with energies more than 100 MeV and detectable gravitoimpulses at distances several kilometers.
