Spatial dependence of quantum friction amplitudes in a scalar model

  author={Aitor Fern'andez and C. D. Fosco},
We study the spatial dependence of the quantum friction effect for an atom moving at a constant velocity, in a parallel direction to a material plane. In particular, we determine the probability per unit time and unit area, for exciting degrees of freedom on the plane, as a function of their position, for a given trajectory of the atom. We also show that the result of integrating out the probability density agrees with previous results for the same system.

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
