The Casimir force between real materials: Experiment and theory
The physical origin of the Casimir force is connected with the existence of zero-point and thermal fluctuations. The Casimir effect is very general and finds applications in various fields of…

A micromechanical torsion oscillator has been used to strengthen the limits on new Yukawa forces by determining the Casimir pressure between two gold-coated plates. By significantly reducing the…
Precise comparison of theory and new experiment for the Casimir force leads to stronger constraints on thermal quantum effects and long-range interactions

We present measurement results for the gradient of the Casimir force between an Au-coated sphere and an Au-coated plate obtained by means of an atomic force microscope operated in a frequency shift…
Violation of the Nernst heat theorem in the theory of the thermal Casimir force between Drude metals
We give a rigorous analytical derivation of low-temperature behavior of the Casimir entropy in the framework of the Lifshitz formula combined with the Drude dielectric function. An earlier result…

The Casimir interaction between two ferromagnetic boundary surfaces is demonstrated using the dynamic atomic force microscope and it is shown that for magnetic materials the role of hypothetical patch potentials is opposite to that required for reconciliation of the data with the Drude model.
Casimir interaction between two magnetic metals in comparison with nonmagnetic test bodies
Author(s): Banishev, AA; Klimchitskaya, GL; Mostepanenko, VM; Mohideen, U | Abstract: We present the complete results for the dynamic experiment on measuring the gradient of the Casimir force between…
Demonstration of optically modulated dispersion forces.
The first experiment on the optical modulation of dispersion forces through a change of the carrier density in a Si membrane and excitation light pulses from an Ar laser is reported.
Casimir and van der Waals forces between two plates or a sphere (lens) above a plate made of real metals
The Casimir and van der Waals forces acting between two metallic plates or a sphere (lens) above a plate are calculated, accounting for the finite conductivity of the metals. A simple formalism of…
