New developments in the Casimir effect
Abstract We provide a review of both new experimental and theoretical developments in the Casimir effect. The Casimir effect results from the alteration by the boundaries of the zero-pointExpand
Advances in the Casimir Effect
1. Introduction I: PHYSICAL AND MATHEMATICAL FOUNDATIONS OF THE CASIMIR EFFECT FOR IDEAL BOUNDARIES 2. Simple models of the Casimir effect 3. Field quantization and vacuum energy in the presence ofExpand
Precision Measurement of the Casimir Force from 0.1 to 0.9 μm
We have used an atomic force microscope to make precision measurements of the Casimir force between a metallized sphere of diameter 196 \ensuremath{\mu}m and flat plate. The force was measured forExpand
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 ofExpand
Precision measurement of the Casimir force using gold surfaces
A precision measurement of the Casimir force using metallic gold surfaces is reported. The force is measured between a large gold-coated sphere and flat plate using an atomic force microscope. TheExpand
Single molecule mechanical probing of the SNARE protein interactions.
Exocytotic release of neurotransmitters is mediated by the ternary soluble N-ethyl maleimide-sensitive fusion protein attachment protein receptors (SNAREs) complex, comprised of syntaxin (Sx),Expand
Molecular form follows function: (un)snaring the SNAREs
Exocytotic release of transmitters is mediated by the ternary SNARE complex. The form of this complex is consistent with its function in the positioning of vesicles to the plasma membrane and theirExpand
Improved precision measurement of the Casimir force
We report an improved precision measurement of the Casimir force. The force is measured between a large Al coated sphere and flat plate using an atomic force microscope. The primary experimentalExpand
Threshold characteristics of semiconductor microdisk lasers
This letter describes the threshold characteristics of InGaAs/InGaAsP microdisk lasers with optical emission near a wavelength λ=1.52 μm. More than 5% of the total spontaneous emission feeds into theExpand
Direct Observation of Pinning and Bowing of a Single Ferroelectric Domain Wall
We have made a direct optical observation of pinning and bowing of a single 180{degree} ferroelectric domain wall under a uniform applied electric field using a collection mode near-field scanningExpand
