Casimir-Lifshitz force between two graphene shits: classical electromagnetic Green's functions approach
The paper considers an approach based on Green's functions of electrodynamics to the analysis of plasmons and interaction forces in a structure with two two-dimensional conducting infinite sheets described by two-dimensional conductivity. The corresponding dispersion equations for bound plasmon-polaritons are found, as well as an expression for the interaction force per unit surface between sheets – the Casimir-Lifshitz force. It is shown that this force occurs due to the excitation of random slow long-wave plasmons. Fast radiative plasmon-polaritons are radiating, and are not contributing to the specified force. Physically, this can be explained by the good transparency of graphene.
