Paper Abstract

We use Rytov's fluctuational electrodynamics to show that Van Der Waals interactions are fundamentally modified by metamaterials. We verify the conditions under which the effect is strongest and also show initial experimental results to prove the same. En route to developing the van der waals theory in metamaterials we have also adopted a unique approach to quantization in lossy dispersive media.
