Nanoscale Characterization Chapter 1

The Casimir Force and quantum interaction between conducting macro-bodies at nanoscale distances

Authors: V. Petrov, M. Petrov, V. Bryksin, J. Petter and T. Tschudi

Affilation: Darmstadt Technical University, Germany

Pages: 54 - 56

Keywords: investigation

We report for the first time on the optical detection of a periodical mechanical interaction between conducting macro-bodies induced by the periodical Casimir force. The influence of conductivity on the Casimir force has been analysed. The presented theory of alternatig Casimir force is in a good agreement with the experimental results. The possible practical applications will be presented and discussed.
