C. Henkel
Thermally Excited Quasiparticles in Metals, Dispersion Forces, and the Thermal Anomaly
Mod. Phys. Lett. A 35 (2020) 2040009, proceedings of the 4th Casimir Symposium, St. Petersburg, June 2019.


    We provide a brief review of the contribution of thermally excited carriers to dispersion forces. In a metal, these carriers generate charge and current fluctuations whose spectral frequencies are comparable to k_B T/\hbar. They are very likely responsible for the "plasma vs. Drude" anomaly.
