## Abstract

There are several fundamental predictions of quantum field theory, such as Hawking radiation (i.e., black hole evaporation) or the Sauter-Schwinger effect (i.e., electron-positron pair creation out of the quantum vacuum by a strong electric field), which have so far eluded direct experimental verification.However, it should be possible to gain some experimental access to these effects via suitable condensed matter analogues. In this talk, some possibilities for reproducing such fundamental

quantum effects in the laboratory are discussed.
