TI - Singularities in the acoustic Casimir pressure as a function of reflectivities
AU - Liebau, Thomas J.
AB - We study the acoustic Casimir pressure between imperfectly reflecting plates immersed in various isotropic noise backgrounds. Unlike the case of perfect reflectors, the force tends to strong repulsion at small plate separations due to the existence of modes between the plates. Additionally, in a noise field of constant spectral intensity, the large-bandwidth limit of the pressure has a reflectivity-dependent sensitivity to the infrared cutoff; we uncover the associated singular behavior as the product of the reflection coefficients approaches 1, which is intimately connected to a tendency of closely-spaced plates to repel if placed in a narrowly peaked spectral background.
