Particle radiation from black holes has an observed emission power depending on the surface gravity as while both the radiation from accelerating particles and moving mirrors (accelerating boundaries) obey similar relativistic Larmor powers, where is the Lorentz invariant proper acceleration. This equivalence between the Lorentz invariant powers suggests a close relation that could be used to understand black hole radiation. We show that an accelerating mirror with a prolonged metastable acceleration plateau can provide a unitary, thermal, energy-conserved analog model for black hole decay.
