Description

We discuss the relevance of the Unruh effect in multiparticle processes. We review the cases where it is nothing more than an effective description of "conventional" multi-particle processes describeable, in the inertial frame, through standard scattering theory, and discuss cases where this equivalency breaks down. We suggest that an experimental investigation of this issue, achievable in the foreseeable future via strong laser physics, is a promising avenue to investigate fundamental physics, using beta decays as an example.
