In this work we study some physical phenomena that emerge in the vicinity of a magnetoelectric boundary. For simplicity, we restrict to the case of a planar boundary described by a coupling between the gauge field with a planar external Chern–Simons-like potential. The results are obtained exactly. We compute the correction undergone by the photon propagator due to the presence of the Chern–Simons coupling and we investigate the interaction between a stationary point-like charge and the…

New Effects in the Vicinity of a Perfectly Conducting Plate in a Non-minimal Lorentz Violation Scenario
In this paper we consider some physical phenomena in the vicinity of a conducting plate in a non-minimal Lorentz-violating scenario in 3 + 1 dimensions. We consider a model where the dynamics of the
New point-like sources and a conducting surface in Maxwell–Chern–Simons electrodynamics
We investigate some aspects of the Maxwell–Chern–Simons electrodynamics focusing on physical effects produced by the presence of stationary sources and a perfectly conducting plate (mirror).
A perfectly conducting surface in electrodynamics with Lorentz symmetry breaking
In this paper we consider a model which exhibits explicit Lorentz symmetry breaking due to the presence of a single background vector $$v^{\mu }$$vμ coupled to the gauge field. We investigate such a
Vacuum polarization from confined fermions in 3 + 1 dimensions
We study the main properties of the one-loop vacuum polarization function (��ν ) for massless spinor QED4 in a slab, namely, with fields defined on M ⊂ R 3+1 , such that M = {(x0,...,x3)|0 ≤ x3 ≤ ǫ},
Field Sources in a CPT-Even Lorentz-Violation Maxwell Electrodynamics
This paper is dedicated to the study of interactions between external sources for the electromagnetic field in a model which exhibits Lorentz-symmetry breaking. We investigate such interactions in
