Abstract

The idea that dark matter could be made of stable relics of microscopic black holes is not new. In this article, we revisit this hypothesis, focusing on the creation of black holes by the scattering of trans-planckian particles in the early universe. The only new physics required - and this can even be questioned - in this approach is an unusually high energy scale for inflation. We show that dark matter emerges naturally and we study the question of fine-tuning. We finally give some lines of thoughts for a possible detection.
