Modifications of Casimir-Polder interactions due to confinement inside a cylindrical cavity and due to curvature in- and outside the cavity are studied. We consider a perfectly conducting cylindrical shell with a single particle (atom or macroscopic sphere) located next to its interior or exterior surface, or two atoms placed inside the shell. By employing the scattering approach, we obtain the particle-cavity interaction and the modification of the two-particle interaction due to the cavity…

TLDR
The leading and the next-to-leading curvature corrections to the interaction for low and high temperatures are obtained and explicit results are provided for the retarded limit in the presence of a perfectly conducting surface.
Green Functions Scattering in the Casimir Effect
We propose Green functions scattering method to obtain the Casimir–Polder potential between anisotropic atom and one or two planar parallel plates. Lifshitz formula for pressure between two
