Mode contributions to the Casimir effect
Quantum Field Theory Under the Influence of External Conditions (QFExt09), pp. 199-203, edited by K. A. Milton and M. Bordag
(World Scientific 2010)


    Applying a sum-over-modes approach to the Casimir interaction between two plates with finite conductivity, we isolate and study the contributions of surface plasmons and Foucault (eddy current) modes. We show in particular that for the TE-polarization eddy currents provide a repulsive force that cancels, at high temperatures, the Casimir free energy calculated with the plasma model.
