The Casimir Problem of Spherical Dielectrics: Numerical Evaluation for General Permittivities


The Casimir mutual free energy F for a system of two dielectric concentric nonmagnetic spherical bodies is calculated, at arbitrary temperatures. The present paper is a continuation of an earlier investigation [Phys. Rev. E 63, 051101 (2001)], in which F was evaluated in full only for the case of metals (refractive index n = ∞). Here, analogous results are… (More)
