Shadows of hairy black holes in Physical Review Letters

The paper "Shadows of Kerr black holes with scalar hair" by P. Cunha, C. Herdeiro, E. Radu and H. RĂșnarsson has been accepted in Physical Review Letters. This work shows Kerr black holes with scalar hair can exhibit new types of shadows in black hole physics. Observing black hole shadows is the primary target of the Event Horizon Telescope.
