We present an explicit analytic calculation of the energy-level shift of an atom in front of a nondispersive and nondissipative dielectric slab. We work with the fully quantized electromagnetic field, taking retardation into account. We give the shift as a two-dimensional integral and use asymptotic analysis to find expressions for it in various retarded… CONTINUE READING
