Quantum gravitational proton decay at high temperature
2005 (English)Other (Other scientific)
One of the most important challenges of contemporary physics is to find experimental signatures of quantum gravity. It is expected that quantum gravitational effects lead to proton decay but on time scales way beyond what is of any relevance to experiments. At non-zero temperatures there are reasons to believe that the situation is much more favourable. We will argue that at the temperatures and densities reached at present and future fusion facilities there is a realistic possibility that proton decay could be detectable.
