On the Response of a Particle Detector in a Circular Motion
Department of Physics, Tohoku University, Sendai 980
(Received August 20, 1984)
We investigate the response of a particle detector coupled to a massless scalar field which is assumed to be in the Minkowski vacuum state. It is shown that the response of the detector in a high speed circular motion is the same as the one in a uniform linear acceleration superposed on a transverse translational motion.
