Casimir Forces and Quantum Electrodynamical Torques: Physics and Nanomechanics
This paper discusses recent developments on quantum electrodynamical (QED) phenomena, such as the Casimir effect, and their use in nanomechanics and nanotechnology in general. Casimir forces andExpand

Halving the Casimir force with conductive oxides.
The possibility to modify the strength of the Casimir effect by tailoring the dielectric functions of the interacting surfaces is regarded as a unique opportunity in the development of micro- andExpand

Tuning the mass of chameleon fields in Casimir force experiments.
We have calculated the chameleon pressure between two parallel plates in the presence of an intervening medium that affects the mass of the chameleon field. As intuitively expected, the gas in theExpand

Locality of surface interactions on colloidal probes
The Casimir and electromagnetic interactions between objects at short separations are strongly influenced by the local geometry near the point of closest approach. In this paper we demonstrate thatExpand

On the torque on birefringent plates induced by quantum fluctuations
We present detailed numerical calculations of the mechanical torque induced by quantum fluctuations on two parallel birefringent plates with in-plane optical anisotropy, separated by either vacuum orExpand

No anomalous scaling in electrostatic calibrations for Casimir force measurements
In a recent paper [Phys. Rev. A 78, 020101(R) (2008)], Kim et al. have reported a large anomaly in the scaling law of the electrostatic interaction between a sphere and a plate, which was observedExpand

Comment on "Repulsive Casimir forces".
A recent theoretical calculation shows that the Casimir force between two parallel plates can be repulsive for plates with nontrivial magnetic properties (O. Kenneth et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 89,Expand

Effect of hydrogen-switchable mirrors on the Casimir force
We present systematic measurements of the Casimir force between a gold-coated plate and a sphere coated with a hydrogen-switchable mirror. Hydrogen-switchable mirrors are shiny metals that can becomeExpand

Virtual photons in imaginary time: Computing exact Casimir forces via standard numerical electromagnetism techniques
We describe a numerical method to compute Casimir forces in arbitrary geometries, for arbitrary dielectric and metallic materials, with arbitrary accuracy (given sufficient computational resources).Expand

Computation and visualization of Casimir forces in arbitrary geometries: nonmonotonic lateral-wall forces and the failure of proximity-force approximations.
We present a method of computing Casimir forces for arbitrary geometries, with any desired accuracy, that can directly exploit the efficiency of standard numerical-electromagnetism techniques. UsingExpand
