Casimir-Lifshitz Interaction between Dielectrics of Arbitrary Geometry: A Dielectric Contrast Perturbation Theory

Abstract:

The general theory of electromagnetic--fluctuation--induced interactions in dielectric bodies as formulated by Dzyaloshinskii, Lifshitz, and Pitaevskii is rewritten as a perturbation theory in terms of the spatial contrast in (imaginary) frequency dependent dielectric function. The formulation can be used to calculate the Casimir-Lifshitz forces for dielectric objects of arbitrary geometry, as a perturbative expansion in the dielectric contrast, and could thus complement the existing theories...
