Electromagnetic Viscosity in Complex Structured Environments: From black-body to Quantum Friction

by Marty Oelschläger, D. Reiche, C. H. Egerland, K. Busch, F. Intravaia




Phys. Rev. A 106, 052205


We investigate the steady-state nonconservative open-system dynamics of an atom in a generic complex structured electromagnetic environment at finite temperature T. In such systems, when the atom moves along a translation-invariant axis of the environment, a frictional force acts on the particle.

About the Co-Author

During his studies in physics (HU Berlin) Marty investigated optimization and inverse problems, utilizing Python and Fortran. In his PhD thesis (Max Born institute) he focussed on fluctuation-induced phenomena, where he investigated the interplay of classical and quantum statistics. During this time he gained experience in code development and design in C and C++ and developed interest in machine learning. After his PhD he focussed on Deep Learning and Image Recognition.
