  • We evaluate the Casimir-Polder potential between two atoms in the presence of an infinite perfectly conducting plate and at nonzero temperature. In order to calculate the potential, we use a method based on equal-time spatial correlations of the electric field, already used to evaluate the effect of boundary conditions on interatomic potentials. This method also gives a transparent physical picture of the role of a finite temperature and boundary conditions on the Casimir-Polder potential. We… CONTINUE READING
