Collimation of positron and electron particle beams by a Kerr-Newman black hole
- 14 Downloads
We study the relativistic collimation of electron and positron particle beams due to a weakly charged Kerr-Newman black hole. Numerical results suggest that the interaction spin-orbit is repulsive when the black hole rotates in opposite direction to the beam’s motion. This condition and charges of the same sign in the black hole and beam are the most favourable scenario to induce beam collimation.
