Publisher Comments:

Dispersion forces acting on both atoms and bodies play a key role in modern nanotechnology. As demonstrated in this book, macroscopic quantum electrodynamics provides a powerful method for understanding and quantifying dispersion forces in a vast range of realistic scenarios. The basic physical concepts and theoretical steps allow

Synopsis:

This book shows how macroscopic quantum electrodynamics can offer a powerful method for understanding and quantifying dispersion forces in a range of scenarios. Numerous examples demonstrate uses in the study of material absorption, magnet properties and more.
