The traditional picture of a black hole as a point-like singularity with no structure at the horizon is known to emit Hawking radiation in a non-unitary fashion. The fuzzball proposal attempts to resolve this dilemma by treating the black hole as a large bound string state with structure at the horizon and a "bubble of nothing" in the interior. There has been much success in matching the microscopic structure of this model with known results from black hole thermodynamics, though a detailed description of black hole formation has not yet been found. As a step towards this, we look at the process of an infalling quanta reaching the black hole and thermalizing, allowing it to be re-emitted later as low-energy Hawking radiation.
