Fluctuation-induced interactions between rods on a membrane.

Abstract:

We consider the interaction between two rods embedded in a fluctuating surface. The modification of fluctuations by the rods leads to an attractive long-range interaction between them. We consider fluctuations governed by either surface tension (films) or bending rigidity (membranes). In both cases the interaction falls off with the separation of the rods as $1/R^4$. The orientational part of the interaction is proportional to $\cos^2\left[ \theta_1+\theta_2 \right]$ in the former case, and t...
