Primordial Gravitational Waves in the Cosmic Bubble Chamber


Angélil, Raymond; Saha, Prasenjit; Diemand, Jürg (2019). Primordial Gravitational Waves in the Cosmic Bubble Chamber. arXiv.org 1903.12573, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We explore the effect of relic gravitational waves on the primordial phase change from the quark-gluon plasma into the low density hadron gas that occurred approximately∼10−5safter the begin-ning. We show that the gravitational wave, through doing work on the fluid, modulates the localvolumes, causing a pressure modulation which either suppresses or boosts the bubble cavitationrate. The boosted rate is significant, implying that the phase transition could have occurred earlierthan if this interaction is not considered
