Force generation due to fluctuations of media and boundaries

Abstract:

In a fluctuating medium, whether of quantum, thermal, or non-thermal origins, an interaction is induced between external objects that modify the fluctuations. These interactions can appear in a vast variety of systems, leading to a plethora of interesting phenomena. Notable examples of these include: 1. like-charge attraction in the presence of multivalent counterions; 2. Ludwig-Soret effect in charged colloids; 3. mass renormalization of moving defects in a phononic background and moving met...
