Thermal effects in the magnetic Casimir-Polder interaction
Quantum Field Theory Under the Influence of External Conditions (QFExt09), pp. 194-98, edited by K. A. Milton and M. Bordag
(World Scientific 2010)


    We investigate the magnetic dipole coupling between a metallic surface and an atom in a thermal state, ground state and excited hyperfine state. This interaction results in a repulsive correction and - unlike the electrical dipole contribution - depends sensitively on the Ohmic dissipation in the material.
