The Casimir Effect and Its Applications
The Casimir effect is analyzed. This effect consists of a polarization of the vacuum of quantized fields which arises as a result of a change in the spectrum of vacuum oscillations when theExpand

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

Tests of new physics from precise measurements of the Casimir pressure between two gold-coated plates
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 theExpand

Precise comparison of theory and new experiment for the Casimir force leads to stronger constraints on thermal quantum effects and long-range interactions
Abstract We report an improved dynamic determination of the Casimir pressure Pexpt between two plane plates obtained using a micromachined torsional oscillator. The main improvements in the currentExpand

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 resultExpand
