Strong Casimir force reduction through metallic surface nanostructuring
The Casimir force between bodies in vacuum can be understood as arising from their interaction with an infinite number of fluctuating electromagnetic quantum vacuum modes, resulting in a complexExpand
Surface plasmon modes and the Casimir energy.
We show the influence of surface plasmons on the Casimir effect between two plane parallel metallic mirrors at arbitrary distances. Using the plasma model to describe the optical response of theExpand
Modeling electromagnetic resonators using quasinormal modes
We present a bi-orthogonal approach for modeling the response of localized electromagnetic resonators using quasinormal modes, which represent the natural, dissipative eigenmodes of the system withExpand
Modeling electrostatic patch effects in Casimir force measurements
Electrostatic patch potentials give rise to forces between neutral conductors at distances in the micrometer range and must be accounted for in the analysis of Casimir force experiments. In thisExpand
Lindblad- and non-Lindblad-type dynamics of a quantum Brownian particle
The dynamics of a typical open quantum system, namely a quantum Brownian particle in a harmonic potential, is studied focusing on its non-Markovian regime. Both an analytic approach and a stochasticExpand
Friction forces on atoms after acceleration.
The aim of this paper is to revisit the calculation of atom-surface quantum friction in the quantum field theory formulation put forward by Barton (2010 New J. Phys. 12 113045). We show that theExpand
Dimensional transformation of defect-induced noise, dissipation, and nonlinearity
In recent years, material-induced noise arising from defects has emerged as an impediment to quantum-limited measurement in systems ranging from microwave qubits to gravity-wave interferometers. AsExpand
Fluctuation-Induced Forces Between Atoms and Surfaces: The Casimir–Polder Interaction
Electromagnetic fluctuation-induced forces between atoms and surfaces are generally known as Casimir–Polder interactions. The exact knowledge of these forces is rapidly becoming important in modernExpand
Casimir interaction from magnetically coupled eddy currents.
We study the quantum and thermal fluctuations of eddy (Foucault) currents in thick metallic plates. A Casimir interaction between two plates arises from the coupling via quasistatic magnetic fields.Expand
Casimir effect as a sum over modes in dissipative systems
The aim of this paper is to show that within the open-system framework the sum-over-modes approach \'a la Casimir leads to the Lifshitz formula for the Casimir free energy. A general resultExpand
