V. E. Mkrtchian and C. Henkel
On non-equilibrium photon distributions in the Casimir effect
Ann. Phys. (Berlin) 526 (2014) 87-101


    The electromagnetic field in a typical geometry of the Casimir effect is described in the Schwinger-Keldysh formalism. The main result is the photon distribution function (Keldysh Green function) in any stationary state of the field. A two-plate geometry with a sliding interface in local equilibrium is studied in detail, and full agreement with the results of Rytov fluctuation electrodynamics is found.
