F. Intravaia and C. Henkel
Casimir Interaction between Absorbing and Meta Materials
(2008) 2767-69, proceedings of the 11th Marcel Grossmann meeting on General Relativity (Berlin July 2006).


    We investigate the Casimir energy between two dissipative mirrors in term of a sum over mode formula which can be interpreted by analogy to a quantum dissipative oscillator. We also show that metamaterials engineered at scales between the nanometer and the micron seem a promising way to achieve a repulsive force.
