Title: Using Berry's phase to detect the Unruh effect at lower accelerations

We show that a detector moving in a spacetime acquires a Berry phase that, due to the Unruh effect, is different for an inertial and an accelerated detector. We take advantage of this phenomenon to propose a new method to directly measure the Unruh effect for accelerations more than 10^9 times smaller than previous proposals sustained only for times of nanoseconds
