The use of radio frequencies (RF) superconducting re-entrant cavities has been suggested in the framework of some research to detect photon generation from the vacuum, due to the dynamical Casimir effect.

  • A Re-Entrant${\hbox{MgB}}_{2}$Cavity for Dynamic Casimir Experiment

    The use of radio frequencies (RF) superconducting re-entrant cavities has been suggested in the framework of some research to detect photon generation from the vacuum, due to the dynamical Casimir effect. A thin semiconducting slab, put inside the cavity, will be excited by a train of laser pulses of a frequency twice the resonant frequency of the cavity, so that a periodic modulation of the dielectric constant of the slab will be realized. In order to produce a RF cavity that can safely work at temperatures larger than 4 K, we have designed and constructed a MgB2re-entrant cavity having a resonant frequency in the range of 2-3 GHz. The cavity is made by a cylindrical cup of about 40 mm of internal diameter and 40 mm of height and on its base is standing a cylindrical coaxial nose on which the semiconductor slab will be deposited. The details of the construction of the MgB2cavity will be presented as well as the measurements of its quality factor, as a function of the temperature.

  • Towards measurement of the Casimir force between parallel plates separated at sub-micron distance

    Ever since its prediction, experimental investigation of the Casimir force has been of great scientific interest. Many research groups have successfully attempted quantifying the force with different device geometries; however measurement of the Casimir force between parallel plates with sub-micron separation distance is still a demanding task, since it becomes extremely difficult to maintain sufficient parallelism between the plates. This paper presents a MEMS chip which is realized to measure the Casimir force between two gold-coated parallel plates at sub-micron distance. The fabrication process to realize the parallel plate structures, the assembly procedure of the measurement setup and some initial characterization results are presented.

  • Micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems with self-propagating switching of devices - structures with phase changes metal-semiconductor analog

    The possibilities of micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems analogs of structures with PCMS have been researchers, theoretically. The offered structure is considered, in which the series switching of devices from one state in another is implemented and the self-distribution of the switched state along structure and its transition to a new state (principle of a domino) is carried out. On the base of the solution of differential equations linking cantilever bias (sag) to its design parameters and an affixed voltage it was established, that in meshes with d>100-150 nm to the defining speaker of meshes and processes of failure (the switching) are forces of Coulomb and elasticity, the Casimir force become essential at d<100 nm, and Van-der-Vaals force at d<10 nm. If the exterior voltage is absent it is possible to establish the oscillations in the mesh by Casimir and elasticity forces which energy is ensured with energy of vacuum, and velocity of change of amplitude is ensured with parameters of a mesh and frictional force. The potential difference at a level 0.1 mV can cause switching of system from high- resistance unlocked in the conductive locked state. The implemented design parameters of a mesh at d 10-1000 nm allow to create controllable mediums, which on fundamental parameters are comparable or considerably exceed mediums on a PCMS in VO/sub 2/ basis.

  • Towards optical manipulation of Casimir force using free-standing membranes with engineered optical and mechanical properties

    By engineering supporting beams of a thin opto-mechanical membrane, we are able to reduce the stress-induced deflection, and realize devices that feature strong optical force for probing the Casimir force.

  • Casimir force correction between parallel polysilicon plates

    Both the size of the components and the separation between them in some microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are already in the sub-micrometer regime, where quantum mechanical effects such as the Casimir effect will need to be considered. This paper theoretically analyzes the roughness, electrical conductivity, and temperature corrections due to the Casimir force between two parallel polysilicon plates. The theoretical results show that the combined effects of roughness, conductivity and temperature cause a maximum relative error of the Casimir force per unit area of 26.2% between parallel polysilicon plates separated by 1 p.m. Therefore, the surface roughness and finite conductivity corrections should be taken into account when calculating precise Casimir forces with separations on the order of 1 μm.

  • Augmented equivalence principle algorithm for domain decomposition method for low frequency scattering, circuits, and Casimir force calculations

    A broadband integral-equation-based domain decomposition method (DDM) using augmented equivalence principle algorithm (A-EPA) is introduced for solving large scale electromagnetic scattering, circuits, and Casimir force problems. The root cause of the low frequency breakdown problem of EPA algorithm without augmentation technique is analyzed. Numerical examples validate the method for various applications in scattering, circuits, and Casimir force calculations.

  • The effect of slider on lubricant loss and redistribution [HDDs]

    Summary form only given. The behavior of a molecularly thin lubricant film under a flying head has recently gained increasing attention due to its critical role in determining the tribological performance, as well as the recording performance, of a head-disk interface. It is recognized that the slider-assisted lubricant transfer and redistribution can take many forms, such as depletion, moguls, waviness-like features, and all accompanied by slider lubricant pickup. It is therefore crucial to understand the role of a slider in the lubricant transfer such that the design rules can be applied to minimize these detrimental effects. In this work, disks with step-profile lubricant film were utilized to study the effects of slider geometry and ABS on lubricant redistribution under an on-track flying condition.

  • Heat transfer and non-equilibrium Casimir forces in nanostructured surfaces

    The scattering theory [1] is a very versatile theory to express the dispersion interaction between two arbitrary bodies solely in terms of their respective reflection properties. We use the scattering theory to compute the heat transfer between two gold gratings [2] as well as to study the thermal component of the Casimir force between two gratings at thermodynamic equilibrium [3].
