Black holes with quantum massive spin-2 hair

    Abstract

    We show that black holes can posses a long range quantum-mechanical hair associated with a massive spin-2 field, which can be detected by a stringy generalization of the Aharovon-Bohm effect, in which a string loop lassoes the black hole. The long distance effect persist for arbitrarily high mass of the spin-2 field. An analogous effect is exhibited by a massive antisymmetric two-form field. We make a close parallel between the two and the ordinary Aharonov-Bohm phenomenon, and also show that in the latter case the effect can be experienced even by the electrically-neutral particles, provided some boundary terms are added to the action.
