We show how to derive a consistent quantum theory of radiation reaction of a nonrelativistic point-dipole quantum oscillator by including the dynamical fluctuations of the position of the dipole. The proposed nonlinear theory displays neither runaway solutions nor acausal behavior without requiring additional assumptions. Furthermore, we show that quantum (zero-point) fluctuations of the electromagnetic field are necessary to satisfy the second law of thermodynamics. Our results are obtained by… 

Dissipative dynamics of a particle coupled to a field via internal degrees of freedom

We study the non-equilibrium dissipative dynamics of the center of mass of a particle coupled to a field via its internal degrees of freedom. We model the internal and external degrees of freedom of

Experimental evidence of quantum radiation reaction in aligned crystals

The authors provide the signature of radiation reaction in quantum electrodynamics by observing the radiation reaction effects when high-energy positrons emit radiation while propagating through a  silicon crystal.

Quantum electrodynamics of inhomogeneous anisotropic media

In this work we calculate the closed time path generating functional for the electromagnetic (EM) field interacting with inhomogeneous anisotropic matter. For this purpose, we first find a general

Einstein-Hopf drag, Doppler shift of thermal radiation and blackbody drag: Three perspectives on quantum friction

The thermal friction force acting on an atom moving relative to a thermal photon bath has recently been calculated on the basis of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. The thermal fluctuations of the

Nonequilibrium quantum field theory

Bringing together the key ideas from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and powerful methodology from quantum field theory, this 2008 book captures the essence of nonequilibrium quantum field

Nonequilibrium Casimir–Polder force in non-stationary systems

Recently the Casimir–Polder force felt by an atom near a substrate under nonequilibrium stationary conditions has been studied theoretically with macroscopic quantum electrodyanamics (MQED) and
