Phenomenology of Black-Hole Radiation  

Effects / Properties of Evaporating Black Holes and Emitted Radiation > s.a. black holes and information; entropy bounds [hyperentropic].
* Nature of radiation: Quanta of all fields that couple to the geometry and to any charges the black hole may have are radiated; In 4D, for T greater than all particle masses, and using standard model parameters, Page estimated that 1.8% of the energy is radiated in scalar particles, 88% in fermions, 9.8% in vectors, and 0.1% in gravitons; In higher dimensions, the gravitational contribution increases.
* Spectrum: Various authors have proposed that it is not exactly thermal, due to (i) Frequency-dependent greybody factors in the potential barrier, (ii) Dynamical nature of black-hole background and energy conservation, back-reaction, in the tunneling approach, or (iii) Quantum correlations.
