Abstract

Hawking radiation can be regarded as a spontaneous and continuous creation of virtual particle-antiparticle pairs outside the event horizon of a black hole where strong tidal forces prevent the annihilation; the particle escapes to infinity contributing to the Hawking flux, while its corresponding antiparticle partner enters the event horizon and ultimately reaches the singularity. The aim of this paper is to investigate the energy density correlations between the Hawking particles and their partners across the event horizon of two models of nonsingular black holes by calculating the two-point correlation function of the density operator of a massless scalar field. This analysis is motivated by the fact that in acoustic black holes particle-partner correlations are signaled by the presence of a peak in the equal-time density-density correlator. Performing the calculation in a Schwarzschild black hole it was shown in Balbinot and Fabbri, [Quantum correlations across the horizon in acoustic and gravitational black holes, Phys. Rev. D 105, 045010 (2022).] that the peak does not appear, mainly because of the singularity. It is then interesting to consider what happens when the singularity is not present. In the Hayward and Simpson-Visser nonsingular black holes we show that the density-density correlator remains finite when the partner particle approaches the hypersurface that replaces the singularity, opening the possibility that partner-particle correlations can propagate towards other regions of spacetime instead of being lost in a singularity.
