Canonical quantization of the electromagnetic field on the Kerr background
Abstract
We investigate the canonical quantization of the electromagnetic field on the Kerr background. We give new expressions for the expectation value of the electromagnetic stressenergy tensor in various quantum states and give a physical interpretation of the separate terms appearing in them. We numerically calculate the luminosity for some of these states. We investigate the form of the renormalized stressenergy tensor close to the horizon when the electromagnetic field is in the past Boulware state.
