We consider charged black holes with scalar hair obtained in a class of Einstein–Maxwell– scalar models, where the scalar field is coupled to the Maxwell invariant with a quartic coupling function. Besides the Reissner–Nordström black holes, these models allow for black holes with scalar hair. Scrutinizing the domain of existence of these hairy black holes, we observe a critical behavior. A limiting configuration is encountered at a critical value of the charge, where space time splits into two parts: an inner space time with a finite scalar field and an outer extremal Reissner–Nordström space time. Such a pattern was first observed in the context of gravitating non-Abelian magnetic monopoles and their hairy black holes. View Full-Text
