A Structure Model for Black Holes: Atomic-Like Structure, Quantization and the Minimum Schwarzschild Radius

A structure model for black holes is proposed employing a mean field approximation of gravity. This model, which consists of a charged singularity at the center and quantum fluctuations of fields around the singularity, is similar to the model of atomic structure. It naturally quantizes a black hole. In particular, we find the minimum black hole, whose structure is similar to that of the hydrogen atom and whose Schwarzschild radius is approximately 1.1287 times the Planck length.
