Acceleration radiation is one of the cornerstones of quantum field theory in curved space-time. Almost half a century after the seminal works of Moore, Fulling, Hawking, and Unruh about the interconnection of gravity, acceleration, and radiation, this topic still intrigues us. In particular, there has been ongoing research using quantum optical techniques to study Unruh/Hawking like radiation; e.g. it has been shown that the radiation emitted by atoms falling into a black hole looks like, but is different from, Hawking radiation.
