We present theoretical and numerical results for the screened Casimir effect between perfect metal surfaces in a plasma. We show how the Casimir effect in an electron-positron plasma can provide an important contribution to nuclear interactions. Our results suggest that there is a connection between Casimir forces and nucleon forces mediated by mesons. Correct nuclear energies and meson masses appear to emerge naturally from the screened Casimir-Lifshitz effect. 
Temperature dependent Casimir forces: recurring subtleties
The Casimir force between two ideal conducting surfaces is a special (zero temperature) limit of a more general theory due to Lifshitz. The temperature dependent theory includes correlations in
Asymptotic behavior of photoionization cross section in a central field
Abstract We demonstrate that the high energy nonrelativistic asymptotics for the photoionization cross section in a central field V(r) can be obtained without solving of the wave equations for the

In this work, we consider a Yukawa modification of the Casimir wormhole. With the help of an Equation of State, we impose Zero Tidal Forces. We will examine two different approaches: in a first

We continue our studies of the high energy nonrelativistic asymptotics for the photoionization cross section of the systems bound by a central field $V(r)$. We consider the bound states with the

We derive a simple asymptotic expression for the screened Casimir free energy that is valid in both the high-temperature limit and in the large-separation limit. Any finite (i.e., nonzero) plasma
The Casimir Effect: Physical Manifestations of Zero-Point Energy
Zero-point fluctuations in quantum fields give rise to observable forces between material bodies, the so-called Casimir forces. In these lectures I present the theory of the Casimir effect, primarily
Casimir-like tunnelling-induced electronic forces
We study the quantum forces that act between two nearby conductors due to electronic tunnelling. We derive an expression for these forces by calculating the flux of momentum arising from the overlap
Casimir force at both nonzero temperature and finite conductivity.
TLDR
Perturbation theory in two parameters (the relative temperature and the relative penetration depth of zero-point oscillations into the metal) is developed and results are compared with computations.
The Casimir force: Feeling the heat
A thermal Casimir force — an attraction between two metal surfaces caused by thermal, rather than quantum, fluctuations in the electromagnetic field — is now identified experimentally, with
Temperature dependence of the Casimir force
The Casimir force—at first, a rather unexpected consequence of quantum electrodynamics—was discovered by Hendrik Casimir in Eindhoven in 1948. It predicts that two uncharged metal plates experience

We reexamine the Casimir and Lifshitz theories of intermolecular forces at nonzero temperature. For dilute media and atomic interactions, the limits of validity of the London-van der Waals potentia
