    Default Vacuum Polarization & Pair Production (??)



    "Ether" analogy as speculative suggestion, for understanding Pair Production, from Photons, near massive Nuclei

    According to Quantum Mechanics for Dummies (pg. ~10), a photon's Wave Function can "split" or "bifurcate" into an electron-positron pair, when it passes near large, and highly charged, nuclei. The following figures suggest a scheme, which could explain, how a single photon Wave Function, develops its "dual personality"*.
    * Pair Production looks like it represents the reverse process of Quantum Entanglement. If so, all Pair-Produced particles are probably 'born' mutually Quantum Entangled with their twins.

    In the following, it is assumed, that there exists an "Ether", consisting of two equally, but oppositely, charged fluids -- a little like air consisting of Oxygen & Nitrogen. In vacuum, these fluids have equal space density, so that the electric fields from photons induce no net, noticeable, changes. But, the (oscillating) electric fields, inside photons, can "push & pull" those constituent components, of the Ether, creating distortions, near nuclei, where, due to Vacuum Polarization, the Ether's constituent charged fluids are non-uniform.

    In Quantum Entanglement, two initially separate Wave Functions "co-mingle" into one. In Pair Production, one Wave Function briefly "bi-furcates" or splits into two separate particles' Wave Functions. This seemingly suggests, that Quantum Entanglement is the "reverse process" of Pair Production.

    If so, then perhaps Pair-Produced particles are 'born' Quantum Entangled. How would this affect Black Hole Radiation, where Pair-Produced particles appear near the Black Hole's Event Horizon, with one particle of the pair falling in, and the other escaping ? For, if that particle pair is 'born' mutually Quantum Entangled, then, when the former particle crashes down into the Singularity at the center of the Black Hole, surely "something" must happen, to its Quantum Entangled twin ??

    Based on classic Hawking theory - radiation from the black hole would be completely thermal and would carry no information. It means that if there is an entangled pure state, and one part of the entangled system is thrown into the black hole while keeping the other part outside, information about particle inside black hole is lost. For such situation there is no way to figure out what happen inside of the black hole based on observation of outside particle.

    This violates a basic of modern science —that in principle complete information about a physical system at one point in time should determine its state at any other time.

    There are various ideas about how the paradox is solved. One of the ideas is that Hawking radiation is not precisely thermal but receives quantum corrections. In July 2005, Stephen Hawking published a paper and announced a theory that quantum perturbations of the event horizon could allow information to escape from a black hole.

    If radiation has quantum corrections, we will be able to observe what happen inside of the black hole.

    There is some other interesting paper “Unveiling quantum entanglement degradation near a Schwarzschild black hole” the result is “The entanglement degradation introduced by the Hawking effect becomes quickly negligible as Rob is further away from the event horizon.” Article is described Unruh entanglement degradation effect of entangled particles.

    My opinion is that your question is still unsolved any case. But can you explain what do you mean, when you ask about Quantum Entangled twin? I try figure out what experiment can be proposed to prove one or other theory Do you have any ideas?
