We investigate the thermal Casimir force between two parallel plates made of different isotropic materials which are separated by a uniaxial anisotropic film. Numerical computations of the Casimir pressure at T=300K are performed using the complete Lifshitz formula adapted for an anisotropic intervening layer and in the nonrelativistic limit. It is shown that the standard (nonrelativistic) theory of the van der Waals force is not applicable in this case, because the effects of retardation…

Optical Chopper Driven by the Casimir Force
We propose the experimental scheme and present detailed theory of the optical chopper which functionality is based on the balance between the Casimir and light pressures. The proposed device consists
The Casimir-Operated Microdevice for Application in Optical Networks
The microdevice capable of producing light pulses from a continuous incident laser light do not using the mechanical wheels with a highly stable speed of rotation is suggested and the feasibility of the proposed device is confirmed with detailed computations of both the Casimir and light pressure forces taking into account the realistic properties ofboth the microstructure and mirror materials.
