Casimir Force in Anisotropic Materials with ac Kerr Effect
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 38, 165-173, 2014
Abstract
The Casimir force between an ellipsoid and a plate can be tuned by using the combination of anisotropic materials and nonlinear materials exhibiting the AC Kerr effect. The force was obtained numerically by using the FDTD method, based on the Maxwell's stress tensor. The results indicate that the force can be significantly varied by changing the intensity and location of the laser, as well as the properties of material. The sensitive changing between ellipsoid and plate structure with different materials' properties provides new possibilities of integrating optical devices into nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS).
